This interactive book may seem to be on your side, reluctant sleeper -- but it's truly a bedtime book in disguise! 

Here's how it works: if you can avoid getting to the end of this book, you can avoid bedtime, simple as that. (It's a pretty sweet deal, actually.) But each time you blink, you have to turn a page. Those are just the rules. So whatever you do, DON'T BLINK! 

It's simple: if you don't want to go bed then DON'T BLINK! Because every time you blink, you have to turn another page of this charming and clever new interactive picture book from the late, great Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

We all know little ones rarely want to go to bed, but DON'T BLINK! will have them excited to settle in for the night! Rosenthal's witty, quirky text will amuse and delight young readers. And Roberts' cute, charismatic owl is the perfect nighttime companion. From staring, squinting, getting all your blinks out, and finally simply closing your eyes, DON'T BLINK! will effortlessly take readers from not sleepy to blissfully off in lala land.

Humorous, fun, and wonderfully executed, DON'T BLINK! is sure to be a bedtime hit with both children and parents!
