I Am Not Sleepy and I Will Not Go to Bed
By Lauren Child
A classic Charlie and Lola bedtime story from Children's Laureate Lauren Child.
A classic Charlie and Lola picture book about tricky bedtimes from Children's Laureate Lauren Child.
Charlie has this little sister Lola. Sometimes he has to try and get her off to bed. This is a hard job because Lola likes to stay up late...
Lola says, "I am not slightly sleepy at 6 or 7 or 8. I am still wide awake at 9 and not at all tired at 10,11 and 12 and I will probably be perky at even 13 o'clock in the morning."
Told with true Lauren Child style, this warm and funny picture book will make bedtime fun for even the most reluctant of children.
