Celebrate generosity, resourcefulness, and midnight snacks in this unexpected bedtime story from acclaimed artist Jen Corace


A grumbling tummy sends a little girl downstairs for a midnight snack. She decides to make toast, but gets stuck on what to top it with. Butter and jam? Peanut butter and bananas? Cinnamon sugar? The possibilities are endless!

Before she can make a choice, new faces arrive. A cat wanders in. Two bunnies hop onto the scene. An elephant’s trunk snakes in from the kitchen window! The girl makes a special treat for each hungry visitor, but when it’s her turn, she discovers the bread bag is empty!

This unexpected bedtime story from critically acclaimed illustrator Jen Corace celebrates the power of generosity, new friends, and a really good midnight snack.
