On the very first page, pajama clad Penguin announces "This is not a bedtime book" with night cap wearing Tiny Shrimp chiming in saying "We don't do bedtime!" The adorable characters make it clear that there is no room for typical bedtime rituals such as toothbrushing, big beds or counting sheep. On the contrary, readers will be enticed to stay wide awake with fireworks, vine swinging, hot air balloon rides, songs, jokes and even the rare appearance of a Uni-Hippo! After Penguin and Tiny Shrimp engage in all their adventures, they maintain their anti-sleep position stating "This book will never make you yawn" but their actions begin to contradict their original declaration. It is not long before the two characters are crawling into bed and sleep soundly. Clearly, storytelling is tiring work!
Penguin & Tiny Shrimp Don't Do Bedtime is a hilarious and highly entertaining picture book from debut author Cate Berry. Not only did I pre-order this book immediately, I now have the perfect recommendation for a bedtime read aloud (sorry Penguin and Tiny Shrimp!) that parents will take great pleasure in reading again and again to their children. Santoso's pictures adorably depict Penguin and Tiny Shrimp's insistence and excitement in staying awake yet by the end of the book, his illustrations subtly and sweetly transition to show their fading energy. Even the background color of the pages becomes gray to signify the change.
