Baker & Taylor
After attempts by his mother, his father, his brothers and sisters, and even two policemen, Mortimer finally goes to sleep

Firefly Books Ltd
It's Mortimer's bedtime, but he would much rather sing his rowdy song. Mom, Dad and even the police can't get him to quiet down, until they become so distracted by each otherthat Mortimer drifts off to sleep.
Mortimer is the story “... of a little boy who won’t go to sleep at night and who drives his family crazy with his rowdiness ... [It] reads as though it was written by a parent driven frantic by one of the contemporary but compulsive stages of childrearing ... [It is] of tremendous appeal to kids and parents at the same stage.”—Globe and Mail

Make up your own tune for "Clang! Clang! Rattle bing bang! Gonna make my noise all day!" and this is great fun to read.
My two year old loves this book.

A great children's book about a young fellow who just won't go to bed!

Also remember to come on out to the free drop in event 'A Whole Lot of Munsch' at the Markham Village Library on Monday, December 22nd from 1:00-2:00 PM. There will be a special story time featuring favourite Robert Munsch stories, activities, crafts, and giveaways!

My preschool class really enjoyed this book and sung along during Mortimer's song.This storyline is more simple than some other Munsch books which means the children can catch on quicker.
