the time when we were younger, until she grew so tired of it that she bought it for us on cassette and we played it enough times that the tape became messed up. The illustrations are phenomenal, the wording light and simple. It's something we can all relate to, saying no goodnight to anything and everyone, just to prolong our bedtime.
