From the author of National Book Award finalist Hey, Kiddo.

From the creator of Punk Farm and the acclaimed Lunch Lady graphic novel series comes a hilarious romp about one little girl’s insistence that she does NOT need a nap.

It’s a tale as old as time—naptime, that is.
Lucy is not tired, not tired, NOT tired.
She is not going to nap today.
Lucy is an expert at staying awake.
But when running errands with her dad, it’s suddenly way too LOUD. The lights in the store are way too bright.
It’s . . . a naptastrophe!
With vibrant, charming illustrations and a relatable main character, this hilarious story is the perfect reminder to parents and kids that you only miss out on the fun when you skip your nap!
Praise for Punk Farm:

“Laugh-out-loud funny. . . . Fans will definitely want a return engagement. Rock on!” —Kirkus, starred review

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The kids loved this book! This is a fun book about a bunny who doesn't want to nap. Having two kids who refused to nap and who hate bedtime they found little bunny very likable. The illustrations are cute and fun.

Fans will definitely want a return engagement. Rock on!” —Kirkus, starred review   “It’s a wild tale hipster kids will love.” —Scholastic Parent and Child Magazine   “The book is fearless in conception and execution, a jazzy comic bit of thievery and transformation. It does not look or sound or behave like your father’s old picture book.” —The Boston Globe
