PreS-- It's time for Susie's nap, but she declares, ``No nap. Susie isn't tired.'' Her father tries to tire her out by taking her for a walk and by dancing the boogie, the bongo, and the creepy camel. They do push-ups, windmills, stand on their hands, and read stories. Trying another tactic, he tells Susie to come and lie down with her already snoozing dump truck, Teddy bear, and dolly. She lies down next to her father, but soon pops up wanting a drink, as well as other items which Dad retrieves for her. Finally, Dad, completely zonked, falls asleep on Susie's bed with mounds of toys piled on top of him. Bunting's humorous and lively text will ring true to many preschoolers as they watch Susie wriggling out of taking the dreaded nap with all her might. Meddaugh's watercolor illustrations bring the vivacious text even more to life as Susie practically bounces off the page with her wide-open, never-sleepy eyes while her father grows more and more weary. --Leslie Barban, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC

"An all-too-frequent occurrence in early childhood is humorously presented when Daddy tries to get little Susie to take her nap. To every blandishment and ploy - a walk, exercise, stories, cuddling - Susie's refrain is 'no nap'. When mom finally return home, the sleeping, exhausted one is Daddy. Susie's determined, unrelenting expression and Daddy's patient but ever more drooping form are amusingly characterised in Susan Meddaugh's scratchy but realistic drawings. Fun to read aloud." - The Horn Book Magazine
