Jason’s dad falls asleep everywhere … except in his own bed.

All night long, Jason gets woken up by strange noises that lead him to find his dad in the most unexpected places—from on top of the refrigerator to the freezing cold woods outside his house. In order to finally get a good night’s sleep, Jason musters up all of his resources and comes up with a most unexpected solution—tying his dad’s toe to the bathroom doorknob to keep him in place.

Now available as a simplified, toddler-friendly board book with revised art by Michael Martchenko, this story will delight young children discovering it for the first time.


“… a great introduction to the incomparable Munsch and Martchenko team.”
—Resource Links, 12/13

“… has stood the test of time and does well in the board book format … a good addition to school libraries, public libraries …”
—The Deakin Review of Children’s Literature, 02/15
