    This is a perfect book to read aloud with children who don't want to go to sleep. By the end, after loads of adventures, they will be nodding off just like the title characters. Well done, Cate Berry and Charles Santoso!

    This book is a clever take on the traditional bedtime story. It's a hilarious read and the speech bubbles and comic-like facial reactions fit with the tone. This is a fun book to share with young children who think they don't do sleep.

    Super book - the kind of bedtime book that my kids want to read over and over. The text compliments the super fun illustrations - we loved how more animals kept joining them through each section. Highly recommended!Comments from my two girls (ages 4 & 8) - On Cate Berry, the author - “She should write more of these Penguin and Shrimp books - I want to READ THEM!”After discussing the note that Charles Santoso created the illustrations digitall...

    kidlitexchange #partnerPenguin and Tiny Shrimp Don’t Do Bedtime...or do they?We really enjoyed this fun book that is “definitely not a bedtime book.”Seriously. It will not cause your kids to fall asleep on “squishy pillows.”Or make them yawn, or cause their eyelids to get heavy. Well, at least that’s what Penguin and Tiny Shrimp keep saying. 🐧Penguin and Tiny Shrimp don’t want to go to bed. They’re not even tired (I don’t kno...

    Penguin and Tiny Shrimp are not going to bed. In fact, nothing in the book will make you sleepy at all. Instead, they will set off fireworks, go on adventures and tell jokes. Nope, nothing in here to make you yawn or your eyelids droop...A perfect anti-bedtime story for any little one who hates going to bed. Every night my two year old asks for 'Penguin!' As we flip through the pages of colorful and soft toned but exciting drawings with the funny...

    Thank you to HarperCollins for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own. Everyone is always yawning in my house BUT when it is bedtime.... jumping on the bed, one more story, another hug... my boys remind me of the characters in Penguin & Tiny Shrimp Don’t Do Bedtime! This is such a cute book about NOT being tired. These characters do everything to show they are not ready to fall asleep. You will be giggling with the knock knock jokes, shar...

    Penguin is the ringleader of bedtime mischief! Tiny Shrimp is the faithful sidekick, always ready to add commentary in support of his NOT-sleepy friend. This raucous book has everything a kid needs to NOT go to bed – sparkling action, exotic locations, songs, a joke, and let’s not forget everyone’s favorite character, the uni-hippo! So toss out the rubber ducky and squishy pillows and come along on Penguin and Tiny Shrimp’s adventure as t...

    An adorable anti-bedtime bedtime book. Extremely funny and kids will totally relate as Penguin and Tiny Shrimp declare their revolt on bedtime and are determined to have a party instead. The twosome mention a variety of sleep-related creatures who they say WON'T be in their book, who also join the party. They are mid-romp bouncing on the bed when they start commenting on how there will not be any squishy soft pillows... and sleep starts overtakin...

    Want to know the truth? I'm thinking this is the next Elephant and Piggy series-for real! The characters are super cute, the dialogue is entertaining (albeit way more complex than the aforementioned series), and I can't wait to find out what else Penguin and Tiny Shrimp don't do! If you're an exhausted parent and you think you're the only household where bedtime is a marathon event, pick up a copy of this book and read it to your kids. After they...

    Thanks to the Kid Lit Exchange network for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.If you, like me, have a strong-willed child at bedtime, might I suggest you take a look at PENGUIN & TINY SHRIMP DON'T DO BEDTIME! These zany creatures are way too much fun to go to sleep. In fact, they do so much fun stuff that they get a little tuckered out. Perfect for kids who just can't stand to miss the excitement they know will be happening onc...

    This book had me laughing from start to finish. I'm particularly fond of the shrimp and enjoyed watching their antics in the illustrations. (I mean, a shrimp wearing sneakers running across the Serengeti is so absurd, it's hilarious! And, I won't blow it, but there's a pretty funny joke, too) This book will have preschoolers giggling.

    This bedtime romp takes the reader through all kinds of antics and adventures and professes NOT to put you to sleep. Although Penguin and his sidekick, shrimp, reject every bit of the bedtime routine, ultimately....well, you know how exhausting all those adventures can be. Cute, fun, and full of potential giggles, this is a not your typical quiet bedtime book.

    A bedtime book for young wigglers. Do not let the reverse psychology of this book lull your kids to sleep! No, don't let those eyes get sleepy! ;)Despite all the humor and action in this rollick through the wide Serengeti, dangerous ocean, and land of UNI-HIPPOS, young children just might find themselves drifting off to sleep.

    This anti-bedtime picture book is a great marriage of text and illustrations. The dialog between the main characters, Penguin and Tiny Shrimp, is hilarious and provides great material for funny read-alouds. And the uni-hippo -- how brilliant is that? Fun for kids at bedtime, or any time but bedtime.

    A humorous take on the traditional bedtime story - these characters have a rollicking adventure or two before settling down. . . a good gift for the toddler in your life.Here is a link to my review: http://perfectretort.blogspot.com/201...

    This book is HYSTERICAL! I can't stop myself from laughing at every page turn. And there's the absolute best character in children's literature ever: uni-hippo! A definite must-read!

    This book is adorable. The characters are super cute. My son loves this book because he thinks he's rebelling like the characters in the book but ends up asleep just like them. It is super cute! Definitely recommend reading it to your littles that like to fight their sleep.
