    Hating the nighttime and engaging in numerous activities to avoid going to sleep, little Blanche is repeatedly reprimanded by her mother to stop making a racket and return to bed, admonitions she responds to with riotous facial expressions that convey her frustrations.
  • Perseus Publishing
    Every day ends the same. Night always falls. Blanche’s mom turns off the light and closes Blanche’s bedroom door. It’s time to go to sleep.

    There’s just one problem: Blanche hates the night. She does not want to go to sleep! She would much rather play. So she puts on a concert to chase away the moon and wake up the sun. She sings in rhyme and somersaults upon her bed, which she imagines is a trampoline.

    Blanche’s mother’s voice floats in: Stop that racket!” and To bed, my little songbird.” But Blanche dominates each spread with her expressive face and creative, endearing attempts to stave off sleep.

    Illustrations in a muted palette mimic shades of night while clean lines let Blanche’s charming facial expressions take center stage. Bursting with personality, Blanche is a willful, sensitive character kids will relate to.Blanche Hates the Nigh is an ideal bedtime read-aloud: eventually, exhausted, she falls into a peaceful slumber.
