Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a favorite! This story was one of my favorites as a little girl and now it is a favorite of my children. This story, especially when told with great enthusiasm, can capture and hold the attention of children of all ages.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from really liked this one Mortimer must be a daily chatterbox, because all his mom says when she puts him to bed (throws him in bed in the book, I don't like that part so I edit it to be a little less antagonistic) is BE QUIET. Well, I know little ones, and you know little ones, and we all know little ones, and Mortimer says yes but immediately does what he shouldn't. He sings. Loudly. He's gonna make his noise all day long. So his whole family, and ultimately the cops troop up to tell him to be quiet, and while they fight over whose responsibility it is (and stop paying him attention for singing), he falls asleep. The ending is a bit predictable, isn't it? But for a bedtime book, as I think this is, that sort of ending is just what you need. Nice and predictable and quick

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mortimer At Bedtime This book is the perfect bedtime book. It is my five year-old son's favourite book to read together when I'm getting ready to put him to bed. We sing and laugh every time that we read it-whether it's the first time or the hundredth time. We have made so many special memories together reading this amazing book that I would say that it's definitely a must in your child's book collection.

Editorial Reviews

[Mortimer is the story] of a little boy who won''t go to sleep at night and who drives his family crazy with his rowdiness ... [It] reads as though it was written by a parent driven frantic by one of the contemporary but compulsive stages of childrearing ... [It is] of tremendous appeal to kids and parents at the same stage.
