With rhymes, humor, and heart, Go to Sleep, Little Creep by David Quinn is a wonderful bedtime addition for the “little monster” in your life. Even monsters have to go to sleep. But before little trolls turn out the light and werewolves settle in to dream, there’s fur to be brushed, pajamas to find, and moons that need howling. So grab your cuddly critter and snuggle in for this new bedtime tradition.
Tucked up in her bed, a little girl wonders about the creatures rumored to go bump in the night. But instead of pulling the covers over her head, she comes up with a list of important questions, like: Does Frankenstein get hungry? Does Dracula floss his fangs? Does the boogeyman have boogers? Does the thing that lives beneath my bed get lonely under there?
With each inquiry, the little girl’s confidence grows—proving monsters are no match for her imagination! From debut talent John Solimine, this laugh-out-loud picture book has all the silly and gentle reassurance kids need for a good night’s sleep.
POW! Sunday Story Time with Alyssa Bermudez (Illustrator of Lucia the Luchadora and the Million Masks)
Lucía the Luchadora returns in a new adventure!
Lucía’s little sister Gemma wants to be a luchadora like her, but she is more bumble and splat than pizzazz, and seems to find trouble wherever she goes. When Gemma makes a ginormous hole in her big sister’s special silver mask, Lucía is exasperated at how she seems to get away with everything. But a trip to the mercado with Abuela presents the sparring sisters with a dazzling array of possibilities: MORE masks and identities to explore! When Lucía realizes she’s misplaced her special silver mask, a frantic search ensues with Gemma’s help, and Lucía discovers that some things, including troublemaking little sisters, are one of a kind.
Bear, Squirrel, and Raccoon have been friends a long time. A loooooooong time.

Well, the party turns out to be quite the surprise indeed, but maybe not exactly what Bear, Squirrel, and Raccoon were imagining?
Laugh-out-loud fun for friends and families of all species!
