Sleep? But there's so much to do!

Rabbit is tired, but not very tired. He still needs to play with his toy cars. He's even made a cool track to race them on. But Mommy says it's time for bed. It can't be true! Rabbit plots and pleads to stay up longer, and at first Mommy and Daddy are willing to give him some more time. But then Rabbit manages to wake up his little sister . . .

This charming story, accompanied by warm-hued illustrations, captures every child's desire to stay up a little past bedtime.

What parent hasn't heard the bedtime line: "Pleeease, just a little longer?" Young Rabbit is a true expert on wheedling a few more minutes out of his weary parents. After all, he's only just started playing, and he's built this really cool race track for his cars, and he has to find the tow truck after he crashes into his little sister's nightstand and knocks something over (waking her up in the process). However, by the time his parents have reached the end of their rope, Rabbit seems to have disappeared. Luckily, a snore from behind the couch gives them the clue they need to finally get that bunny into bed. But guess who's wide-awake and wanting her oatmeal now!

Swedish author/illustrator team Lilian Edvall and Sara Gimbergsson capture a most common childhood moment with freshness and humor. The rabbit family is adorable and wonderfully familiar, right down to our hero's mischievous eyes, little sister's yawns, and Mommy and Daddy's tolerance-wearing-thin expressions. Readers on both sides of the go-to-bed issue will enjoy this playful, charmingly illustrated bedtime story. (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
