From the Coretta Scott King Award winning author, Nikki Grimes comes this incredible black children’s book to create an imagination-fueled and animal-filled journey to bedtime.
“Has the feel of an all-time great bedtime picture book”–The New York Times
It’s bedtime. But Mommy’s little one is not sleepy.
He growls like a bear, he questions like an owl, he tosses his mane like a lion. He hunts for water like a sly wolf, and hides like a snake.
Mommy needs to wrangle her sweet creature in bed so that the whole family can sleep. From tigers to squirrels to snakes, the little boy dodges around his bedtime, until he is tired enough to finally sleep. His imaginative animal friends weave their way through the illustrations, eventually joining him in curling up for the night.
