    Description"Bedtime!" said the Mother. "NO!" said the Baby. The Baby wants to stay up all night, so he revs up his car and sets off on an adventure. Before long, he finds himself all alone in a sleepy land. But there is someone else who's not asleep...someone who loves the Baby very much. A magical book whose soft yet sparkling artwork perfectly captures the twilight world of a small child, determined not to go to sleep.

    Review quote
    "The text reads aloud with effortless rhythms, occassinal rhymings, in a delicious dignity of tome. This is a perfect bedtime picture book and a memorable extended metaphor for loving and being loved" The School Librarian "An imaginative, stylish and dream-like bedtime story" The Bookseller "Text and pictures are inventively surreal, funny and loving, with a perfectly judged almost-scary climax and a snuggly conclusion that doesn't quite banish Baby's magical world. A meaty book, with touches of brilliance, that enters an infant mind without a hint of condescension" Books for Keeps "A read dream of a book ... A beautiful storybook that every young sleepyhead is sure to love" Mother & Baby "Goes to the heart of true infant experience, with elements that all small children will recognise and enjoy" The Irish Times
