Go to Sleep, Little Creep is an adorable twist on a typical "bedtime" book. The parents are trying to get their little monsters to go to sleep because the sun's coming up and it's time for bed. There are mummies, zombies, vampires, fish creatures, Godzilla-type monsters, Frankenstein monsters, ghosts, werewolves, sasquatch, and some 'regular' monsters. Each have their own part in the book that match up with the rhyming story. I thought the story itself was cute and I loved how the author flipped the usual nighttime story with one that monster parents would use for their kids. The rhyme scheme kept a nice quick pace and rhythm that kids are going to love. The illustrations were fantastic - full page color with lots of details and adorable characters. The pictures fit in well with the story and each one corresponds wonderfully with the text it accompanies. This is definitely a new type of bedtime picture book and one that I most definitely recommend!
