Bed-based procrastination is nothing new, but Livi’s imaginative play takes the experience to an entirely superior level.


Kids everywhere dread the nightly call to go to bed. But not Livi! Her imagination takes her on a journey full of daring obstacles and exciting adventures on her way to bed. She pilots a spaceship, walks a tightrope, and climbs a mountain, all while her Mom waits with her covers turned down and bed ready. With stalling techniques as creative as this, it's a wonder she ever makes it to bed! Author Sarah Maizes and illustrative veteran, Michael Paraskevas, once again create a funny, fresh book that will be a must for every parent who wants to foster creativity while fulfilling the every day necessities.

A brilliant follow-up to on my way to the bath.
The protagonist, Livi, is a genius at procrastination.

The book is extremely well written and artfully illustrated

I strongly recommend it
