What People Are Saying

Official Book Launch Party!

MAY 20, 2:00 PM
BookPeople Booksellers, Austin TX
Join author Cate Berry and illustrator Charles Santoso (virtually!) for a pajama book launch party (jammies optional!). We’ll sail across shark-infested waters, fly in hot air balloons, anything but bedtime. Cake, songs and prizes loom large. See you there!

Reviews & Awards:

  • A Junior Library Guild Selection, Spring ’18

“Debut Berry revs up her romp… the digital art from Santoso (Peanut Butter & Aliens)—highlighted by comical images of the wide-eyed, open-mouthed title characters—energizes Berry’s tactically understated text, often wryly turning it on its head. A buoyantly subversive antibedtime tale.” —Publisher’s Weekly Featured Review

“The story is a smartly comedic entry in the genre of the anti-bedtime story, and the exclamatory dialogue-only text adds energy and humor. This will be a joyous bedtime read.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“A definite do for bedtime.” —Kirkus Reviews 

“A beguiling pair…much yawning will ensue…and that’s a good thing.” —Booklist

“Sure to make your little night owl smile—and fuel their imaginary adventures in dreamland.” —Washington Parents Magazine

Events

See Cate at the annual Austin SCBWI Conference April 29-31
