Pete likes to sleep in pajamas.

Gwen slumbers best in a gown.

Shawn goes to bed with a shoe on his head

for sleepwalking while upside-down.


These clever and quirky poems make bedtime FUN! From a “bunk bed king” who rules from up high to monsters who are not (I repeat, NOT) in the closet, Maybe I’ll Sleep in the Bathtub Tonight truly captures the childhood experience of going to sleep. It casts an amusing eye on sleepovers, beds crowded with animals, the fight to stay awake, and that one last drink of water.

Each verse ends with a delightful twist, and charming art captures the poems’ whimsy and magic. They’re sure to bring sweet dreams, full of laughter, to every child!
