Are You Awake?

Sophie Blackall; illustrations by Sophie Blackall

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Edward can’t fall asleep, and like most children, he has a million questions burning to be answered even though it’s way past his bedtime.

In this funny picture book about the all-familiar bedtime negotiations between child and parent, Edward and his mother talk about everything from yellow dogs to corn on the cob. Most children (and parents) will recognize themselves in this gentle ode to bedtime.
