Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

It's Sunday morning, very early Sunday morning. Anthony and Nicholas are not supposed to wake their parents before 9:45 am. (Whenever that is.) Certainly, three puzzles falling off a shelf isn't enough to wake them. And what about some music or a game of boat in the living room? These wouldn't wake them up, would they?

But when Nick really yells help, the know they're in trouble. Then the boys and their parents discover something they never would have imagined.

I bought this for my 5 year old grandson who is about to become a big brother and who loves to wake his parents on Sunday Mornings. He absolutely loved this book despite the fact that it was written about 40 years ago and doesn't have transformers or robots in it. I have always loved Judith Viorst's writing and it is a joy to pass it along to the next generation.

Wouldn't it be great if our little kids slept in on Sunday morning?! I bought this book because my 2 boys love the Judith Viorst's Alexander books. This one didn't disappoint. My 4 and 6 year old love the illustrations and the mischief the 2 boys in the book get in to when their parents tell them not to wake them on Sunday morning. Of course the kids fight, and make a mess of the house. I guess my own kids can relate!

Three generations in our family continue to be delighted by and relate to the lighthearted mischief of two boys up early while their parents attempt to slumber.

Format: Paperback
One word: illustrations! The art in this shadow-world storybook is astounding.

Despite having less detail available for facial expressions because the characters are silhouettes with eyes until the last page, the extraordinary movement and personality embedded in these characters is so much more compelling than just the narration itself.

Two little boys, big brother Anthony and little brother Nick, are instructed to let their parents sleep until 9:45 AM Sunday morning. But this is a tall order for a pair of imaginative boys who can't stay still. So much is going on that the boys don't understand as the omnipresent clock ticks away their adventurous morning. The boys behave badly. Hurt each other mildly. Misbehave in realistic ways because no one is there to see them. Get threatened by their parents several times. Make huge, amazing messes--but that's not a blanket, that's water! We're on a boat!

I absolutely loved how the peeks into different rooms of the house were made possible by letting us peer in the cross sections, and how full-bodied and animated the children's expressions were (the drawings depict them using their whole bodies to express themselves), and how deliberately attention-seeking little Anthony is. I love that you could really imagine being in that room with those kids. The last page when the lights turned on was the only one that disappointed me. I kind of liked not knowing what the family's features looked like.

Wonderful book, I loved it as a child. Had to get it for my niece for Christmas and very happy I did. Had it in time for Christmas and in great condition.
