Bank Street's Best Children's Books of the Year

"This cavalcade of disapproval and huffiness is uproarious . . . a flat-out delight." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The illustrations are sublime in their restraint and fearless use of ample white space . . . A lovely, if wakeful, bedtime book." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The illustrations and hand-painted text give Naptime an interesting maturity in its design, one which lends itself well to making this story timeless." -- CM Magazine
"I do not want to take a nap. / Naps are for little babies. / Tiny little babies . . . Ha ha ha! A nap? What a joke! / I'll take a nap if I want to. I'm the one who decides!" -- from the book
