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.
