“A rhyming story that may be full of laughs. ‘The alarm can ring. The birds can peep….Today’s the day I will sleep,’ says a lazy boy one morning, and despite a pail of icy water, television coverage, and the arrival of the Marines, he vows to stay in bed–and he does! The repetition of concepts and words will keep children turning the pages, as will the energetic drawings. A sure draw for early readers.”–Booklist. Despite the fact that I’m Not Going to Get Up Today! is aimed at young readers, it just gets better as you get older. Only after you’ve weathered more than few world-weary years are you able to fully appreciate this book’s profound and universal message: “The alarm can ring. The birds can peep. My bed is warm. My pillow’s deep. Today’s the day I will sleep!” But the rhyming words of Dr. Seuss and goofy illustrations from James Stevenson will surely get quite a lot of giggles from the old and the young, as everyone on the town–from brothers and sisters to the police and the Marines–conspires to get our little hero away from bed. But, as the sleepy boy says, “nobody’s going to get me up, it doesn’t matter what he does.” (Not with tickling nor shaking nor cold water on the head.) “Nothing’s going to get me up. Why can’t you keep in mind! You can only waste your money if you hire a big brass band.” (Ages 4 to 8) –Paul Hughes
