Story Time with Drew Daywalt

September 15, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT

We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome back Drew Daywalt, (The Day the Crayons Quit), one of our all-time favorite picture book authors, for a Sleepy: The Good Night Buddy Story Time, his hilarious twist on the classic bedtime story.

While sheltering in place, take a break from the day to day at home and the bustle of being virtually back at school. Grab your kids, their friends who they miss playing with, and their cousins who you couldn’t visit this summer and get together – virtually – for a feel good, laugh out loud story time

Roderick hates going to bed and has become quite resourceful in coming up with ways to delay the dreaded hour when the lights must go out. Roderick’s loving parents—fed up with the distractions and demands that have become his anti-bedtime ritual—decide to get him a stuffed animal to cuddle with and help wind him down. However, Sleepy quickly proves to be a bit high-maintenance. Just when he fears the night may never end, Sleepy’s antics become too exhausting for Roderick to bear. How will a boy who routinely refuses to go to bed get a talkative stuffed animal to go to sleep?

Drew Daywalt is the much loved, incredibly funny New York Times best-selling author, best known for writing The Day the Crayons Quit and its sequel, The Day the Crayons Came Home, both illustrated by Oliver Jeffers, for which he won the EB White Read Aloud Award. Drew is also the author of The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors, illustrated by Adam Rex, Star Wars: BB-8 On the Run, illustrated by Matt Myers, and Sleepy: The Good Night Buddy, illustrated by Scott Campbell,. Drew is also a Hollywood screenwriter.

It’s impossible not to crack up while reading Sleepy: The Good Night Buddy. Join us and discover the pleasure of a great story told by a great storyteller.
