Reviews & Awards for Penguin & Tiny Shrimp Don’t Do Bedtime!:

  • 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
