One Upon a Time, the End (asleep in 60 seconds) by Geoffrey Kloske and Barry Blitt


Dad really wants his child to go to sleep but of course the child needs just one more story.  In desperation the dad tries to shorten the stories.  What follows is a romp through “Chicken Little”, The Two Little Pigs, and so many more.  Children will have fun comparing the dad’s versions with the originals.  The dad gets more and more desperate as the story goes on and each tale gets chopped more and more.  This is a fun book.

This book is quite funny.  I can relate as a parent.  There are a lot of other “bedtime” story spoofs that could be tied with this including Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein.  This book has a lot of possibilities.
