We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome back Drew Daywalt, (The Day the Crayons Quit), one of our all-time favorite picture book authors, with  acclaimed artist Scott Campbell (Hug Machine) with Sleepy: The Good Night Buddy, their laugh-out-loud twist on the classic bedtime story.

Roderick hates going to bed and has has become quite resourceful in coming up with ways to delay the dreaded hour when the lights must go out. Roderick's loving parents—fed up with the distractions and demands that have become his anti-bedtime ritual—decide to get him a stuffed animal to cuddle with and help wind him down. However, Sleepy quickly proves to be a bit high-maintenance. Just when he fears the night may never end, Sleepy's antics become too exhausting for Roderick to bear. How will a boy who routinely refuses to go to bed get a talkative stuffed animal to go to sleep?

Drew Daywalt is the much loved, incredibly funny New York Times best-selling author, best known for writing The Day the Crayons Quit and its sequel, The Day the Crayons Came Home, both illustrated by Oliver Jeffers.  Drew is also the author of The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors, illustrated by Adam Rex, and Star Wars: BB-8 On the Run, illustrated by Matt Myers. Drew is also a Hollywood screenwriter.

Scott Campbell draws pictures for all kinds of children's books, including Zombie in Love; East Dragon, West Dragon; and XO, OX, A Love Story. He is the author/illustrator of the very popular Hug Machine 

It’s impossible not to crack up while reading Sleepy: The Good Night Buddy. Join us and discover a new favorite.
