Move over, Frances the badger, and good night, silly old moon. Meet Oliver – a boy who *really* knows how to stay up!
Oliver Donnington Rimington-Sneep
COULDN’T and DIDN’T and WOULD NOT SLEEP!
And why should he? As soon as his parents shut his door, Oliver’s off on all kinds of explorations: painting and reading, drawing and racing – and a little trip to Mars for good measure. But his explorations end where all explorations should: safe at home, in a warm bed . . . asleep.
For every parent with an Oliver (or Olivia) in their lives, and every child seeking a little fun before shut-eye, OLIVER WHO WOULD NOT SLEEP is the perfect bedtime adventure.
