Penguin and Tiny Shrimp will charm, amuse, but never put you to sleep in this meta bedtime tale in the vein of Goodnight Already.
Penguin and Tiny Shrimp DO NOT have a bedtime story to share with you.
There are no soft beds or cozy covers here. There are fireworks! And shark-infested waters!!
This book will never make you sleepy. Not at all. Not even a little. . .

Penguin and Tiny Shrimp Don’t Do Bedtime is a reeeeally cute bedtime book no matter what the title says :) P.S. That hippo yawn is quite contagious!
Penguin and Tiny Shrimp are determined NOT to go to bed. I love the extremely adorable Penguin trying to convince the reader that this is NOT a bedtime book because this book does not have any bedtime things. And so Penguin--accompanied by Tiny Shrimp's very funny commentary--makes a case for what the book DOES have (swinging on vines, hot air balloons...) There is a fun, surprise visitor that gives a little twist to the ending in which Penguin and Tiny Shrimp--despite their fight--fall asleep. The drawings give such life to the animal characters, especially that stinking adorable penguin! I really hope there are more of these.
This bedtime romp takes the reader through all kinds of antics and adventures and professes NOT to put you to sleep. Although Penguin and his sidekick, shrimp, reject every bit of the bedtime routine, ultimately....well, you know how exhausting all those adventures can be. Cute, fun, and a different sort of bedtime book.
