Cute, with fun illustrations. Not quite as good as I was expecting.

Young Maggie’s wishful note said “Bedtime is canceled!” Her parents didn’t believe it for a second. They put the note directly into the trash.

But the note didn’t stay there. Before long, a gust of wind got ahold of the note and blew it across town into an open window.

It landed on a news reporter’s desk and was reprinted in the headlines of next morning’s newspaper. “BEDTIME IS CANCELED!” Everyone read it - or heard about it. Everyone believed it (except for Maggie and her brother).

The principal at Maggie’s school read it and immediately sent a notice home to all the parents – who were, understandably, not happy. (In fact, some parents threw temper tantrums - and were given time-outs by the principal!)

That night, there was no bedtime. Pajamas lay unworn and teddy bears sat unhugged. Kids played tag, bounced on their beds and climbed the walls - as did their parents. No one slept.

The next morning, weary parents poured coffee in their briefcases and purses and buttered pets’ tails instead of toast. Tired teachers couldn’t remember the answers to “1+1” and “2+2”. At dinnertime, parents fell asleep at the dinner table with their heads in plates of mashed potatoes or bowls of soup.

Things were quickly getting out of hand.

The new note said, “Bedtime is NOT cancelled!” Maggie wrote it – and this time, her parents believed it. The newspapers printed it and the television stations reported it. And that night, everyone went to bed and slept and slept, except for Maggie and her brother….

Preschoolers may want to delay (or cancel) their own bedtime to hear this hilarious story one more time!

A string of coincidences leads to bedtime being cancelled, but there are consequences to this, and silliness runs rampant. The pictures have a whimsical nature about them, and match the story quite well.

This is a funny book. Kids in 1st grade and under would enjoy it.
