When bedtime is canceled, the world goes crazy!"A hilarious tour de force."&nbsp- Kirkus Reviews

The note read: "Bedtime is canceled." Maggie thought of it. Her brother wrote it.

&nbsp &nbsp &nbspIt was just a funny note for their parents at first, but then it blew out the window and a journalist read it. It became headline news! Soon it's official: No one in the city is sleeping, and the sleep-deprived people are drying their faces with cats and throwing tantrums in flower beds. A wry parody of our tech-connected age and an entertaining sibling story by an award-winning author, with witty and whimsical illustrations by the French artist&nbspAurélie Neyret.
