Liane | 2 comments Hi, I'm looking for the name of a children's picture book i read in the mid 1980s about a child who refused to go to bed and instead stayed up playing alone while the family slept. Thank you for your help!

Liane, what does the child play with? Are there fantasy elements?

How does the family handle the situation?

Can you describe the illustrations - e.g., simple or detailed, realistic or cartoony, painted watercolors or bold graphics, bright or dark colors, black & white? Do they remind you of a similar illustrator or picture book author?
