Overview

Lucy DOES NOT want to go to bed. She wants to draw. But as she's working on her masterpiece, Lucy creates . . . Monster! Monster just wants to play. And play. And play some more—until even Lucy is exhausted. It's going to take some quick thinking (and drawing) to get this tireless monster to bed. . . .

Natasha Wing and Sylvie Kantorovitz have created a sweet and hilarious bedtime tale reminiscent of Harold and the Purple Crayon. It's a story about friendship, imagination, and turning the tables on those little monsters who just won't go to bed!

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Lucy, unable or unwilling to go to sleep, takes out crayons and paper and begins to draw. An oval body, square head, rectangle legs, circle eyes and several triangles form themselves into a not-so-scary and very playful green Monster. Drawing away, Lucy and her alter ego build castles, fly an airplane, march in a parade and have a stomping, jumping, grand time. Now Lucy is tired but Monster refuses to go to bed. Delaying the inevitable with all the familiar excuses of thirst, hunger, bathroom needs and storytime wishes, weary Lucy uses her artful ability to place her dreamy-eyed, sleepy Monster into a cozy bed before closing her own drowsy set and finally falling asleep. Child-like drawings and lettering done in crayon colors using oil paints and pastels accentuate the time-honored premise through Monster's exaggeratedly droll expressions. Knowing toddlers will eagerly reach for their own box of crayons. (Picture book. 2-4)

This is a very cute, easy to read book. We got it from the library, but my granddaughter wants me to buy it for her. And I will, because she read her very first complete sentence from this book...."Go to bed." I highly recommend it.
