Publishers Weekly

“Late one starry night,/ when the sky was blue and deep,/ a perky little princess/ could not go to sleep.” The girl’s two older sisters try “sprinkl fairy-dust wishes,” dancing, snacking on sticky buns, and taking a soothing bubble bath, but nothing does the trick. Meanwhile, Van Fleet incorporates several touch-and-feel elements into the pages (the sticky buns: actually sticky), creating a parallel game of distraction to the one the sisters are involved with. Cozy colored-pencil artwork gives the story a snug quality—with their flannel nightgowns and modest home, these are the kind of everyday princesses that readers will find it easy to relate to. Ages 2–6. (Jan.)
Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
The sky is dark and bedtime has arrived, yet the little princess is not ready to go to bed. Her older sisters attempt to get the little princess off to sleep. They model good night kisses and hugs using little princess’ doll; however, the doll and the princess are still wide awake. The sisters try additional playtime to wear out their little sister. They give the princess milk with honey buns. The sisters set up a warm bubble bath. Still, the results are the same: the princess is not sleepy. Some children will enjoy special visual and tactile features in the illustrations. One item is the cover’s moveable part: a push and pull tab that rocks the doll in the princess’ arms. The sparkly fairy-dust, shiny jewels, sticky honey buns, fuzzy blanket, and satiny pillows are a few items that will catch the attention of the readers as they figure out what it will take for the princess to get into bed and the lights to be out. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung; Ages 3 to 6.

It's long past time for bed, but a certain little princess is not one bit sleepy.The text describes, in pedestrian and sometimes-awkward rhyming verse, two sisters' valiant efforts to ease their wide-awake sibling toward slumber, including hugs and kisses, fairy-dust wishes, playtime and dress-up, dancing, a snack of milk and honey buns, a warm bath and wrapping her up in her soft blanket. Nothing seems to slow the princess down until the sisters put her in a comfy chair with a big stack of books, and the princess responds with a little yawn. Finally, they all drift off to sleep. The uninspiring illustrations, which feature lots of pinks and purples and silver glitter for the fairy dust, are partly rescued by a couple of interactive elements. The front cover depicts the three sisters in bed with the youngest sister holding a baby doll; it features a tab that, when pulled, moves the baby back and forth as though the girl is rocking it. The final page includes a large flap in the shape of pillows and blankets that when pulled back reveals the little princess sound asleep. The topic of getting reluctant little ones to bed is a perennial favorite, but the execution here is lackluster at best.Not worth losing sleep over. (Board book. 2-4)
