Go Back to Bed!

It is bedtime for Edwin Dupree, but Edwin is not ready to go to sleep. He makes up excuse after excuse, not to go to bed. He creeps downstairs and says he is hungry. There he discovers his mother has been baking, he imagines that the things she has been baking turns into a room full of treats for him to eat.
Next, he is thirsty and imagines that the living room is transformed into a water park. There is bobsleeding with penguins when it is too hot, and a hunt for his teddy bear in a forest before he is able to settle down.
The thought of going to bed is a problem for many children and here is a wonderful tale, with beautiful illustrations, for this tale so well played out.
