Patrick is having his first ever sleep-over at his Granny’s house and as bedtime gets closer, he turns on the stalling tactics. “I don’t have a bed,” or a pillow, or a blanket or a teddy bear he cries. His Granny is at the ready and works almost the entire night chopping trees, plucking chickens and shearing sheep to correct all of these bedtime obstacles. Is she going to be able to beat the sunrise so Patrick will actually get some sleep?
Kids are going to love hearing Granny yell “what?” every time Patrick thinks of a new problem that gets in the way of going to sleep and the story will ring true to adults who are oh so familiar with kids like Patrick.
