Jules Ralph Feiffer (born January 26, 1929) is an American cartoonist and author, who was considered the most widely read satirist in the country. He wrote the animated short Munro, which won an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 1961.

Father and daughter Feiffers deliver a bedtime book underscoring the notion that sometimes only pure exhaustion will lull a baby to sleep. When the blue pajama’ed baby announces No go sleep, he means it. Page after page of reassurances from parents, the setting sun, the watchful moon, bunnies, owls and even a car driving by saying Beep, beep, sleep, sleep are all for naught. The text’s lilting cadence coupled with the cool, nighttime palette might make readers expect the baby to acquiesce, but he’s not one to fall for such standard bedtime-book ploys.

Kate Feiffer is the author of several children’s books, including Double Pink, illustrated by Bruce Ingman; President Pennybaker and My Mom Is Trying to Ruin My Life, both illustrated by Diane Goode; The Problem with Puddles, illustrated by Tricia Tusa; and Henry the Dog with No tail, illustrated by her dad, Jules Feiffer. She lives on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. Books by Kate Feiffer. Mor. rivia About No Go Sleep!

Jules Feiffer’s innovative and influential comic strip began as a weekly .

Feiffer’s first foray into children’s books was to illustrate Norton Juster’s now classic The Phantom Tollbooth. She is the author of the picture books President Pennybaker; But I Wanted a Baby Brother!; The Wild, Wild Inside; Which Puppy?; and My Mom Is Trying to Ruin my Life; and of the middle-grade novel The Problem with the Puddles. She lives with her family in New York and on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. Visit her at KateFeiffer.

A baby-finally-falls asleep with the rest of the world in this soothing picture book from Kate and Jules Feiffer

A baby finally falls asleep with the rest of the world in this soothing picture book from Kate and Jules Feiffer. And the sun said, "" I ve gone for the da. "When you wake up, ""I ll be back to play.

In the end only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you. ― Anonymous. A Barrel of Laughs, a Vale of Tears. In 1965, Feiffer wrote what is arguably the first critical history of the comic book.

A baby—finally—falls asleep with the rest of the world in this soothing picture book from Kate and Jules Feiffer.And the sun said,“I’ve gone for the day.When you wake up,I’ll be back to play.”Even though the stars are out and the moon is bright, the baby says, “No, go, sleep!” But as the world around the baby gradually goes to sleep—first the sun, then the moon, then the sheep, tree, and owl—the baby finally, finally, finally falls asleep too. Lyrically written, this lulling text, paired with soothing art, will put even the youngest reader in the mood to visit dreamland.

Wasted money, fell for it based on reviews. Not sure why everyone raving about this book. It's not a book at all, it's not a story, it's not a good rhyme. I would literally take any person with zero literature/writing experience 2 minutes to come up and write this book. The illustrations are ugly as well. my kid had zero internet in it as well.

This is possibly the best book ever, and you'll get a kick out of it, too, if your child is an insomniac. Everyone tells the baby to go to sleep, of course the baby says NO, and then falls right to sleep. I wish it was that way in real life! But a cute book, nonetheless.

Take one look at the messy line illustrations in this book and you will recognize the Feiffer signature style. It works especially well in this bedtime story, lending charm to the characters and giving everything a sleepy, smudged look just perfect for bedtime. The text is simple and clever, making everything around the child a friendly presence, as the stars say "We will twinkle and sprinkle sweet dreams down to you", and the car driving by says "Beep, beep, sleep, sleep". I loved how the goldfish were quick to reassure "We won't swim away", and of course the dog says nothing because "He was too sleepy".

This is a book that will very easily fit into a bedtime routine to be read night after night. The illustrations are so expressive, and the repeating rhythm of the story makes it a perfect read aloud. The best illustration in the book is when the baby says "NO!" Parents and kids alike will look at that mad face and laugh, and admire how the illustrator perfectly captures the baby on the last page, when yes, he finally goes to sleep. This made me think of a contemporary Goodnight Moon, and is an enthusiastic recommend.

No go sleep is an adorable book about a baby. Like many babies and toddlers, going to sleep is something they are not fond of. They would much rather stay up and have fun. This baby is no different. As he is in bed, he tells his parents no go sleep. After reassuring the baby, the sun and moon help. If that is not enough the cars and fogs have a little something to say. Baby is reassured by everything and then back to his room by his dolls. Baby is still not confined even after his mother is asking again. Finally one last no is called out and then baby unwillingly closes his eyes and fall asleep.

I like this book for many reasons. First of all as a parent dealing with a difficult sleeper, this book does have some humor to it. Second of all, as a child having butterflies and cars saying good night can bring on smiles and laughs. The last part I like is that if you have a difficult sleeper, this book will help bring on conversations. It is great door opener to a discussion lead by the parent.

I am not fond of baby saying no to parent but I see why for some this is necessary.

Overall it is a well written adorable book that is fun for many age groups. I would recommend it.

My 22-month daughter LOVES the book! I'm not charmed that the book teaches my child the phrase 'no go sleep' (which luckily hasn't caught on) or by the final 'NO' the baby says (immediately before going to sleep anyway), but I love every page in between. The pages offer comforting messages from nearby objects (dolly, shoes, birds, trees, owls, etc) that are soothing and fun. I substitute 'nigh-nigh' for 'No' with each reading, and the book overall works for me that way.

This has been a bedtime favorite for my boys - it's great for up to about age 2.5. Cute story, lots of room for flexible reading, and not too long. We just sent it to my younger nephew and my boys were sad to see it go!
