"WAA! WAA! WAA! I will not go to bed!"
the teeny-tiny, itty-bitty, little Prince said.
Nanny is at her wits' end. Why won't the Prince go to bed? Squire Frat, Lord Gerty, and others in the royal household try to help. Could he want a fluffy pillow? A softer mattress? A gentle lullaby? As the Prince's cries get louder and louder, the castle turns topsy-turvy--until Princess Kate, woken by the ruckus, thinks to ask her brother why he won't settle down--discovering that a simple good-night kiss is all he wants.
Ingenious collage illustrations rich with funny antics bring this medieval world to life, while the rollicking rhyme will have listeners chiming in with glee.

Rhymes, repitition, and funny & expressive illlustrations. I thought the missing part of the bedtime ritual was going to be a story book, but I was wrong. You read it and find out what the prince finally told his sister he needed. Read full review
