PlaytimeWritten and Illustrated by Jeff Mack

If you’re a fan of Jeff Mack (and I am) then Playtime? will not disappoint, a fun picture book told with only two words that will hold the attention of any child not willing to go to bed.

We have a cute gorilla with the funniest expressions who seems willing to go to bed but really has something else on his mind, like, PLAYTIME! And there is a sweet little boy that is willing to let the gorilla have his way once (or twice). This could be a new favorite bedtime story, I know my grandkids loved it and there was definitely more than one reading.
