What's Playtime? About

Publisher Summary

This funny picture book ode to the struggles of bedtime is perfect for fans of Mo Willems’s Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!

Bedtime can be a challenge for the best of us. But when you’re a fun-loving, overactive pet gorilla, bedtime is downright hard. Who would want to go to sleep when Playtime is so much more fun? But the gorilla’s responsible friend thinks enough is enough; no more fun and games. It’s not Playtime–It’s Bedtime! So the boy turns off the lights and the gorilla goes . . .

Well, definitely NOT to sleep!

Using only two words–Playtime and Bedtime–and an abundance of clever, giggle-inducing artwork, Playtime! is simple yet richly creative and bursting with childlike humor. Your own little gorilla will find it irresistible.
