Oliver Who Would Not Sleep! Oliver Who Would Not Sleep!

Written by Mara Bergman
Illustrated by Nick Maland

"Goodnight, Moon?" Try "Hello, Mars!"

Oliver Donnington Rimington-Sneep
couldn't and didn't and would not sleep!

And who could blam him, with so much to do?
He could read, he could draw, make a painting or two --
Race like a rocket in his fastest cars --
Sail in a silver ship up to the stars!
But even explorers must sleep so they'll grow.
Or must they?
You'll just have to read it to know!


"Starting with the picture on the title page of a wide-awake Oliver in bed but ready to spring out, there is a driven intensity about this book with its bold text and full-bleed, fanciful spreads. Young listeners will understand the message–that there are too few hours in a day. This is an excellent selection for pajama storytimes and one-on-one sharing." -- School Library Journal

"The soporifically rhythmic verse casts Oliver as the mini-hero of his real and fanciful bedtime adventures. Whimsically detailed watercolor and line illustrations lift Oliver from the intimacy of his bedroom into a boundless outer-space fantasy world where creatures bear a strong resemblance to Oliver’s stuffed “cuddlies” and the rocket ship looks a lot like Oliver’s toy space ship. A warm and fuzzy homage to Sendak’s Max and his wild things guaranteed to lull little ones into their own night-time adventures." -- Kirkus Reviews

“Kids will relate to Oliver, whose wide eyes finally close after his imaginative adventures tire him out.” -- Parents Magazine
