Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

When Mama Chick kisses her kids goodnight, she expects them to stay in bed, but those chicks...run...wild! They jump around and do cartwheels, until Mama comes in and says "You're all in trouble. But when she turns out the lights...they start a pillow fight! Finally, Mama gets them settled, but she's not ready for bed either!<br> <br> Sudipta Bardhan's playful ryhme and not-quite-ready for bedtime attitude and Ward Jenkins' exuberant artwork will delight both parents and kids!

Horn Book Review

A raucous group of chick siblings can't settle down at bedtime, going bonkers each time Mama leaves the room. Their clever mom returns and joins in the fun, dancing wildly with her chicks until they're begging for their beds. Spirited digitally painted pencil illustrations capture the bed-bouncing, pillow-fighting joy of a sleepover--and the satisfaction of dancing oneself into a happy slumber. (c) Copyright 2011.
