From the back cover:
When Amy won't get out of bed, her parents don't know what to do. Amy's brother comes up with a wacky solution that gets Amy to school on time - but will her school ever be the same?
Amy couldn't get out of bed because she was watching the late show and it made her really tired. Jordan says you would get in trouble for sleeping in (on a school day). Her favourite part was when the kids were in art class. They painted and wrote on Amy as she slept. She gave this book 2 thumbs up.
Robert Munsch is a classic kids story teller. His book are full of fun silliness while trying getting a point across, in this case don't stay up late on a school night. While the solution used isn't something you could actually get away with, it does make the young readers laugh at the possibilty. As for a parents perspective, I know that Jordan wakes up at the crack of dawn on the weekend but could definitely sleep in on any given weekday. I totally empathize with these parents!
Sadly, the message here hasn't made its mark yet on my own child ;-) But all in all, it's a very cute book, good for young school age kids.
