When Stella's toy animals refuse to go to sleep, she comes up with a clever plan using her keen imagination.
(Age 3 and up)
It's time for Stella to go to bed. But how can she sleep when Cherry Pig, Thunderbolt the puppet mouse, and Beanbag Frog are wide awake? "I'm the world champion of staying awake!" shouts Cherry Pig, bouncing on the bed. Luckily Stella is good at thinking up ways to get her toys to sleep - by taking them on a sailing Pillow Ship, a shoebox Midnight Train, and a toy-basket Starship Balloon. With luminous illustrations and an utterly charming text ("I've shut my eyes, but my feet are completely woken-up . . . "), this ode to a child's imagination and boundless spirit is certain to be a winning choice at bedtime.

Amazon Best Books of the Month, July 2011: It’s time for bed, but Stella’s animals are wide awake, so what’s a girl to do? Stella knows she can get them to sleep with a little imagination, so first she dreams a pillow into a ship for Cherry Pig, and they sail across the waves. At the end of the voyage Cherry Pig is asleep, but now Thunderbolt thinks he is the world champion of staying awake, so Stella creates a special dream for him, too. With clever stories that deliver sleepy results, Stella tucks each animal into bed until, finally, she is the last one still awake--but not for long. Pairing a witty narrative with rich illustrations, The World Champion of Staying Awake is destined to become a treasured bedtime classic. --Seira WilsonAbout the Author:
