Another bestselling Munsch classic now available as a board book.

Jason's dad falls asleep everywhere... except in his own bed. All night long, Jason gets woken up by strange noises that lead him to find his dad in the most unexpected places -- from on top of the refrigerator to the freezing cold woods outside his house. In order to finally get a good night's sleep, Jason musters up all of his resources and comes up with a most unexpected solution -- tying his dad's toe to the bathroom doorknob to keep him in place.

Now available as a simplified, toddler-friendly board book with revised art by Michael Martchenko, this story will delight young children discovering it for the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a classic re-vamped This book is a re-release for toddlers presented as a board book.  Some of the text and pictures have been updated but the hilarious message is still the same and ready to be unpacked to a new group of lucky kids. Jason hears funny noises in the middle of the night and when he gets up to investigate he finds his dad snoring....laying on top of the fridge.  He shouts, "Papa wake up!" and that's when the fun begins.  Jason goes back to bed only to be woken up time and time again finding his dad in very strange places indeed - like the top of his car and even outside in 50 below zero weather.  Jason has a huge responsibility rescuing his dad over and over and trying to keep him safe.  He finally uses his brain and concocts a plan to keep his dad safe by tethering him in one spot where he can't escape and keep walking off. You will love the ending, a special little twist that only Robert Munsch can pull off....let's just sum it up by saying...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. This delightful zany book will have your kids laughing out loud.  The re-vamped illustrations are classic and Michael Marchenko is a storyteller in himself with what he produces visually.  I know your child will be asking for this often. You will hear the shout coming from the bedroom..."Papa wake up and read me that story one more time!"
