FOR THOSE ABOUT TO NAP...
WE SAL-UTE YOU!
Bedtime book meets music festival in this adorable book about a sloth who wakes up only once a year, to attend the world's greatest concert for the world's greatest SLEEPERS!
We will, we will ROCK YOU (to sleep).
Snuggleford Cuddlebun is a champion sleeper. In fact, she's such a good sleeper that she decides to go to Snoozefest, an arena festival that celebrates sleep. There, she lounges in her hammock while bands like the Nocturnal Nesters and the Quiet Quartet serenade the audience with lullabies. There's warm milk and honey to be had, designer pajamas from Diane von Firstinbed, and no one dares be seen without a baby blanket. But before she knows it, the nuzzling, snuggling, and dreaming are over—and Snuggleford has slept through it all.
This hilariously endearing bedtime story is perfect for anyone who loves sloths, music festivals, and/or the joy of SLEEPING.
"Preschoolers will love the sleep-tailored diction (“naptacular”; “tire-riffic”) and rollicking verse, such as this description of a critical component: “Some of the blankets are in mint condition. / Others collectible, rare, first edition. / Some are so old, they’re all tattered and torn. / This sloth has had hers since the day she was born.”
"No snoozefest here—great fun." (Picture book. 3-6)"
"This knowing, affectionate spoof of music festivals is fresh and timely."
