can ring. The birds can peep....Today's the day I'm going to sleep, ' says a
lazy boy one morning, and despite a pail of icy water, television coverage, and
the arrival of the Marines, he vows to stay in bed--and he does! The repetition
of concepts and words will keep children turning the pages, as will the
energetic drawings. A sure draw for early readers."-- "Booklist.

Although I'm Not Going to Get Up Today! is aimed at young readers, it just gets better as you get older. Only after you've weathered more than few world-weary years can you fully appreciate this book's profound and universal message: "The alarm can ring. The birds can peep. My bed is warm. My pillow's deep. Today's the day I'm going to sleep!" But the rhyming words of Dr. Seuss and goofy illustrations from James Stevenson will surely get more than a few giggles from the old and the young, as everyone in town--from brothers and sisters to the police and the Marines--conspires to get our little hero out of bed. But, as the sleepy boy says, "nobody's going to get me up, no matter what he does." (Not with tickling nor shaking nor cold water on the head.) "Nothing's going to get me up. Why can't you understand! You'll only waste your money if you hire a big brass band." (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul HughesAbout the Author:
