Once upon a midnight dreary . . . Little Edgar the Raven is having a tough time minding his mother. Dinnertime, cleanup-time, and bedtime are all met with one word--`NEVERMORE!` From drawing on his bedroom walls with crayons to chasing his sister with a scarecrow, this mischievous and disobedient little bird would much rather do anything than behave. But as the evening winds to a close, Edgar's mom knows just what to do to get her son into bed. Charmingly simple text paired with captivating gothic-era illustrations give a sly wink to Edgar Allan Poe's popular poem `The Raven,` Edgar Gets Ready for Bed will have little literature lovers saying, `MORE! MORE Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on January 19, 1809. When he was a child, Edgar wrote so much poetry that by the time he was thirteen he had enough poems to fill a book. Throughout his life, he wrote poetry, short stories, mysteries, and literary reviews for magazines. Edgar is best known for his dark and scary stories and as the inventor of detective fiction, but most wanted to be remembered as the editor of a literary magazine. Some of his most famous works are `The Tell-Tale Heart,` `The Fall of the House of Usher,` and `The Raven.` Jennifer Adams is the author of more than two dozen books, including titles in Gibbs Smith's BabyLit series, which introduces children to the world of classic literature.
