Synopsis: The clock strikes nine. Jake should be asleep. But he's decided to stay up all night long. "I'm not going to bed," he tells his dad. Now the fun begins--or does it? At 9:15 he turns on the TV. At 10:00 a mouse runs round the house. At 11:00 an owl hoots, shadows shade the wall, and Jake shivers a little. Will he make it till morning?

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 2 In a common childhood fantasy, Harry defies his usual bedtime hour and attempts to stay awake through the night. His father reacts with nonchalancean almost chilling coldnessas he walks up the stairs to bed and never bothers to check on the child until he wakes up and goes downstairs early the next morning. In the quietness of the house settled for the evening, Harry uses the remote con trol to switch the televison off and on, he plays with his toys, scans the newspapers, and tries to have a party. Finally he falls asleep on the living room floor. His father finds him in the morning and helps Harry to his own bed. Harry is portrayed as a child out of place in the adult world of the late evening. Typical night sounds of owls hooting, clocks ticking, and even the qui etness are amplified. Baruffi's illustra tions are predominately from a child's floor level perspective. The furniture is oversized, towering above Harry. Dou ble-page spreads show expansive floor and wall backgrounds. This directs read ers' attention to the more colorful and de tailed items: Harry, his toys, and the party goods. Overall, these images are harsh. The book lacks the melodious and com forting tones of Brown's Goodnight Moon (Harper, 1947) or the family love and car ing exhibited in Polushkin's Mother, Mother, I Want Another (Crown, 1978).
