There are dozens of children’s books that have stood the test of time – that is to say: bedtime.

If you’ve got kids, you can probably name many of the classic works of Robert McCloskey, Dr. Seuss or Sandra Boynton.

But there are also new takes on kiddie lit, by the likes of Mo Willems and BJ Novak – many of which take on a more sardonic tone aimed both at adults and as the children they’re reading to.

In this week’s book review, West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel reviews a pair of books from an author who calls herself “Ann Droyd,” and who takes a classic work written by Margaret Wise Brown and translates it for the modern age of bedtime stories.

Nick Schenkel is the director of the West Lafayette Public Library, and reviews books from all walks of literature.
