    Penguin and Tiny Shrimp will wear themselves out proving that they are NOT SLEEPY. All I can think of is Mary Poppins singing, "Stay awake, don't close your eyes."Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Penguin & Tiny Shrimp Don’t Do Bedtime is an all around fun book! Cate generously sent us this un-bedtime story book 😉Penguin & Shrimp are your typical characters who don’t want to sleep, the books takes us to many fun places, including the ocean with shark infested waters & a ride on a hot air ballon, the book even includes some songs, all so penguin and Shrimp don’t go to bed! But will all the fireworks and excitement finally get them ...

    This book was me last night after drinking a bunch of rum, going hard for about five minutes, and then crashing. Now I just need a children's book about waking me up this morning... Maybe Penguin and Tiny Shrimp can do coffee.
  • Melissa Stoller
    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!
  • Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow
    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.
  • Sarah Lynne
    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...

No problem! Just read Penguin & Tiny Shrimp Don't Do Bedtime and you are sure to stay awake all night... or will you??? Penguin & Tiny Shrimp are not ready to go to bed and they made sure this book is all about some action. Will there be br...

    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...
  • Shauna
    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...
  • Jen Betton
    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...
  • Jessie Oliveros
    Penguin and Tiny Shrimp are determined NOT to go to bed. I love the extremely adorable Penguin trying to convince the reader that this is NOT a bedtime book because this book does not have any bedtime things. And so Penguin--accompanied by Tiny Shrimp's very funny commentary--makes a case for what the book DOES have (swinging on vines, hot air balloons...) There is a fun, surprise visitor that gives a little twist to the ending in which Penguin a...
  • Kate Narita
    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...
  • Tracy
    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...
  • Anna
    This book smelled so good! You want that book smell? Then you gotta smell this book. Story wise, it's really cute. The illustrations are cute as well. I love all the animals! Especially the unihippo! [SPOILERS AHEAD]It has a lot of fun and silly things that Penguin and Shrimp do until the end where they fall asleep. It made me smile because the book is all about how it's not a bedtime story and that they are not tired and will stay awake.
  • Patricia Valdez
    Cate Berry is one of the funniest children's book authors around! Penguin and Tiny Shrimp is a rollicking fun time that will somehow leave you longing for your bed by the end of it. I hope to see more of Penguin, Tiny Shrimp, and the other magical characters in the future!I reviewed an advanced copy of the book.
  • Michelle Cusolito
    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.
  • Beth Anderson
    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.
  • Hannah Holt
    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.
  • Christy
    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.
  • Diane
    This book has fireworks and rain forests and jokes ... even a Unihippo. Anything to keep the characters from falling asleep. But ... yawn ... sometimes those eyelids get heavy, even when you don’t want them to.Love the comical illustrations.
  • CLM
    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:
  • Syntha Green
    Fun, would be good for storytime.
  • Erica
    There is a Uni-Hippo in this book! A Uni-Hippo!
  • pati
    All this avoiding bedtime has made me tired! But I am not going to bed...zzzzzzzzzzzzzz...
  • Rachel
    So delightful! Love the characters.
  • Michele Knott
    I laughed out loud. The young reader I shared the book with laughed out loud. Kid tested and approved. Make sure this is in your read aloud rotation!
  • Kelly
    Adorably funny bedtime book.
