Stalling - Alan Katz




Released September 2010

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Little Dan is a master of the art of bedtime stalling. As the clock moves closer to the magical hour when Dan knows he’ll hear those hated words, “Time to get ready for bed, Dan”, he slips it into high gear with a long list of “not yet” excuses.

Dan’s “bucket list”  includes checking his height to see if he’s grown during the day, trapping an armadillos using his pillow, performing a “funky” dance with his toy monkey, calling grampa and gram, and much more.

Each “task” is illustrated with a wild array of pictures that will cause a few chuckles. And, by the time Dan has finished explaining why he can’t go to bed quite yet, guess what? His parents have given up and they are already in bed and sound asleep!

What parent hasn’t had to deal with bedtime stalling? Probably not many! Both adults and children will love the humorous, rhymed twist Alan Katz puts on the nightly ritual.
