It’s bedtime. It should be quiet. But not if your room is a zoo! A young boy is kept awake by his toy animals (26 of them, from A to Z) who employ all the bedtime delay tactics they can muster. An alphabet of animals from Armadillo to Zebra keeps him up until he's so tired, he has to stop their shenanigans so he can get some sleep. Written in humorous rhyming verse by debut picture book author Jerry Ruff and brought to life by Simona Ceccarelli’s whimsical illustrations, this book is a fun bedtime read that kids will ask for again and again.
