Go to Bed, Monster!

Written by: Natasha Wing

First line: One night, Lucy tossed and turned.

Why you should read this book: Imagination turns the tables on a little girl who, having invented a monster companion to join her when she cannot sleep, finds that the monster refuses to dial it down when the little girl is finally ready for bed. Children identify with the crayon-drawing monster, the pair’s antics, and the monster’s endless list of before-bed demands. Also fun for parents of children who have trouble falling asleep.

Why you shouldn’t read this book: When you say, “lights out,” you mean LIGHT OUT!
