It's time for bed, but Biscuit wants to have a snack, and play, and hear stories. Will he ever go to sleep?

(synopsis from Goodreads)

I am so not the audience for this.

That said, this would be a great title for kids who are just starting to read on their own. The text is extremely simple, highlighting a "story" about a little dog who wants to do all sorts of things... except go to bed. The illustrations are lovely, and the dog is very cute.

Overall, this is a great read-aloud title for toddlers or a good book to start with for young school-age children who are wanting to read books all by themselves. For anyone older than that, though, the only appeal will be the cute pictures of the puppy.

Premise: 4/5

Writing: 3/5
