It's not fair! All Little Owl wants is to go to bed at a reasonable hour, like his friends do. But no ... Mama and Papa say little owls have to stay up late and play. So Little Owl spends all night jumping on his bed, playing on the jungle gym, and doing tricks on his skateboard - but he's hooting mad about it! Children who have a hard time going to bed will love this fun twist on the universal dilemma.
"Corace's illustrations are more daring, throwing a wider color spectrum into the mix and showing a slight anime influence.

NY Times "This fun reversal of traditional bedtime woes is sure to be enjoyed by many children." School Library Journal
