Publisher's Description

Every night it’s the same old thing, with dad refusing to go to bed. He wants to play, read stories, even sleep with me, and when he makes his pleading face, I always give in and read him another story. But that’s it, since enough is enough. When it get’s really tough, I tell myself, "Have courage. We’re almost there."

A boy’s playful account of trying to put his dad to sleep gives children a delightful heads up on what a pain they can be at bedtime, while affirming the tender bond between father and son.

A joyful, sweet, laughter-inducing book that children will clamor to read again and again!

Coralie Saudo is a children's book author and illustrator with an altogether terrific sense of humor. She has written over twenty books, many of which she has illustrated. In this volume, her high-spirited text is perfectly matched by the high humor of Kris Di Giacomo's illustrations.

Born in Brazil, Kris Di Giacomo is a popular children's book illustrator who has lived in France for a long time. After a brief stint in the United States, she moved to France, where teaching English to young children and discovering French picture books were the triggers that led her into illustration.

Editorial Reviews

"Inventively illustrated and impossibly adorable, this is a book children will gobble up. And ask for again." -- Pamela Paul, The New York Times Book Review

“Saudo’s faux adult patter, translated persuasively by Bedrick, is dead on (“We said one story, and we’ve already read two. That’s enough for tonight”). Go to F**k to Sleep tried to convey a difficulty of the bedtime routine for parents; this is more imaginative, and can actually be read aloud to children.” – Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

“Young insomniacs will recognize themselves in the antics of the oversized dad and enjoy poring over the naively drawn details found on every page.” – Kirkus Reviews

"A turning of the tables and charming artwork set this warm and funny bedtime book apart from its kin...A guaranteed bedtime winner." - Jennifer M. Brown, Shelf Awareness (March 21, 2012)

"...one of the most charming and engaging picture books to hike down the pike in years. A story that upsets expectations but retains its heart, this is the perfect bedtime fare for any kiddo that rejects the very notion of going to sleep (and who has a sense of humor).

The art itself is just a delight. [...] Finally, from an aesthetic standpoint I couldn’t help but love that the pages of the book itself were thick and sturdy. They make it feel like it’s worthy of holding on to and treasuring.

This book is a true original in the best sense. Consider it your own little secret weapon on the war on bedtime. A find." -- Elizabeth Bird, Fuse #8
