Every kind of bird and beast has to sleep, from the monkeys in the jungle to the whales in the ocean to the ants under the ground. But not Fred. His to-do list is far too long!

Editorial Reviews

A fun addition to the bedtime canon." -School Library Journal * "Schneider's deadpan delivery, combined with his ability to populate a world of realistically rendered animals in fanciful settings or situations, is a comedic win? Ingenious." - Kirkus, starred review * "From visual gags like jellyfish in sleep masks? to verse mocking soporific picture-book rhymes? it's a pitch perfect parody. Sorry, parents: kids will be too busy laughing to get sleepy reading this one." - Publishers Weekly, starred review "A bedtime story sure to inspire dreams of imaginative antics." -Booklist Praise for Princess Sparkle-Heart Gets a Makeover by Josh Schneider "Schneider continues to show a remarkable talent for bringing uncommon humor and psychological depth to ordinary situations. . . . Another winner." - Publishers Weekly, starred review "[This] playful take on the beauty makeover upends expectations with comedic-and powerful-results. . . . A testament to the joy of creation and a celebration of a different kind of beauty." - Kirkus, starred review "
