In this fantastical bedtime adventure, babies from far and wide join forces to defy their ultimate nighttime nemesis: sleep!
The babies have come from far and wide, crawling and walking and toddling and tumbling.
These are the can’t-sleep babies, the won’t-sleep babies, the itchy-feet babies, the just-one-more-story-please babies.
“Sleep! Sleep! Anywhere but Sleep!!!” sing the babies.
And the quest of the Midnight Babies begins!
Babies arise! In an epic quest to stay awake, the Midnight Babies must overcome sleepy temptation: battling the forces of Slumberland, venturing through the Forest of Nightlights and the Sea of Stories, voyaging through the Garden of Lullabies to the Rockabye River, and even through the dreaded Land of Nodoff. But can they resist their greatest challenge: the Cuddle?
Bestselling author-illustrator Isabel Greenberg turns bedtime on its head with a hilarious, delightful odyssey that will resonate with wide-eyed little ones and sleep-deprived parents alike!
"This clever, tongue-in-cheek story will be best appreciated by parents familiar with sleep-delaying tactics. The dynamic, cartoony pencil-and-charcoal illustrations, colored digitally, are lively and imaginative and feature lots of endearing, wide-eyed, racially diverse infants."Kirkus
