Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Mischievous mix-ups rule in this fun-loving tale of barnyard babies who stave off the bedtime hour for as long as possible. To the consternation of their surprised parents, the ducklings, piglets, lambs and chicks initially swap beds. "You sassy scalawags! You're not my darling ducklings!" Father Duck admonishes the piglets he finds frolicking in his pond. Mother Hen scolds the lambs in her chicken coop, "You naughty scamps! You're not my chicky chicks!" Subsequent stalling tactics will be familiar to children and parents everywhere: "We want ten kisses each!" "Tell us one more story, please!" (Or, as the piglets squeal, "We have to wee, wee, wee!") Australian collaborators Wild and Argent (Miss Lily's Fabulous Pink Feather Boa) depict these antics through simple, rhythmic sentences and muted watercolors that lend a cozy, snuggle-up feel to the story. Argent's expressive paintings combine well with Wild's repetitive and sometimes alliterative phrasing: "Settle down." "Snuggle up." "Sleep tight." "Nighty night!" Young readers won't want these characters to say good night and will surely use this book to forestall their own imminent bedtimes. Ages 2-6.

From School Library Journal

reS-K-Four parents are trying to get their little ones off to bed. Instead of her "lovely lambs," however, Mother Sheep finds rascally chicks, Father Duck finds sassy piglets, Mother Hen finds naughty lambs, and Father Pig finds tricky ducklings. Once the animals are rounded up, the little creatures postpone going to sleep by using some of the same tricks children are familiar with-asking for one more story, saying they are thirsty, etc. Argent's lovely watercolor illustrations highlight the characters' humorous expressions. The well-designed book features appropriately spaced spot illustrations on white alternating with richly colored pages. Full-page spreads are sparingly used to provide visual punch. This rhythmic, repetitive bedtime story will lull kids to sleep and comfort tired parents.

Just got this one from them library and will soon be adding it to our own collecttion. A wonderful story about barnyard animals who have just as much trouble getting their offspring to bed as some of us parents do. First the animals mix up all their beds and then they try to put bedtime off again with requests for more stories, water ,and wee wee( my sons favorite page). I loved all the adorable nick names and different ways of saying goodnight. This is sure to become one of our favorite bedtime stories and may even provide us with some new bedtime riturals(sp?). The illustrations are beautiful as well and capture the emotions of the animals perfectly.

I teach young children and I like this original take on farm animals and their sounds. The little animals don't want to go to bed (young children relate to that!) and trick their parents by changing places with other animals. It's very silly and children always enjoy a story with silly tricks. They also like to join in on the animal sounds. I do skip the "wee wee" page though since some kids just get too hysterical over bathroom words. All in all, it's a cute story.

My daughter is 2.5 and she thinks this book is hilarious. I guess it's the animals playing tricks on their parents and then their parents scolding them, but she laughs and laughs while we read it. I don't find it that amusing, but since I am not the target audience my opinion doesn't really count. Fun farm animal read.
