Award-winning author Cece Meng delivers the delightful story of Maggie and her brother, who write a note to get out of their bedtime. But when the note ends up on the desk of a newspaper reporter, a media frenzy ensues and they get much more than they wished.
The note read: Bedtime is canceled. Maggie thought of it. Her brother wrote it. A news reporter read it. This was big news. He reported it. Before they knew it, the whole city discovered that bedtime had officially been canceled, so no one went to sleep!
Cece Meng, author of I WILL NOT READ THIS BOOK and TOUGH CHICKS, delivers a pitch perfect cautionary tale, a wry parody of our information-glutted age, and heart-warming brother & sister adventure. Illustrated with wit and whimsy by French artist, Aurélie Neyret.
"Meng playfully expands and exaggerates children's efforts to put off the inevitable lights-out and turns a universal tug of war into a hilarious tour de force."
"Meng's writing is clear, direct, and funny, and Neyret's digitally created illustrations have an appropriately comic and cartoonish tone."
