Goodnight Moon meets Goodnight Already! in this very funny bedtime book from New Yorkercontributors Patricia Marx and Roz Chast.
This is the story of Nellie Bee Nightly, who is not tired at all. And swears she never will be!
The popcorn is too pooped to pop, and the nightstand is too tired to stand up straight and must lie down — but Nellie? Nope, she's wide awake, and not ready for bedtime AT ALL. Instead, she gives her goldfish a mustache and hangs her bed from the ceiling so that she can install a swimming pool in her room. Nellie, after all, went to sleep last night, and shouldn’t that be enough sleep to last a lifetime?
Wonderfully quirky, subversively sweet, and effortlessly classic, Tired Town is a brilliant new bedtime story from humorist Patricia Marx and Roz Chast, the #1 New York Times-bestselling and award-winning creator of Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?: A Memoir and I Must Be Dreaming.
