I Am Not Sleepy and I Will NOT Go to Bed

Laugh yourself to sleep with the new Children’s Laureate! Charlie has this little sister Lola. Sometimes he has to try and get her to go to bed. This is hard because Lola likes to stay up late. Lola isn’t even slightly sleepy at 6, 7 or 8. She’s still wide awake at 10. In fact, she’ll probably still be perky at 13 o’clock in the morning! Charlie has tried everything, from counting sheep to pink milk. Lola isn’t tired – but Charlie definitely is!

  • A hilarious favourite from the Children’s Laureate
  • Explores a familiar problem in a bright, bold way
  • Quirky story brought alive by bright collage artwork
  • Classic series which won the Kate Greenaway Medal
