Review quote

A few reads of this ought to tire out kids before their not-canceled-after-all bedtimes.

Meng playfully expands and exaggerates children's efforts to put off the inevitable lights-out and turns a universal tug of war into a hilarious tour de force.

Meng's writing is clear, direct, and funny, and Neyret's digitally created illustrations have an appropriately comic and cartoonish tone.
