Yay Snoozefest! Concept and drawings are adorable, but it's a little long.

SUMMARY: Snuggleford Cuddlebun is a sloth who loves to sleep. She especially looks forward to attending Snuzzlefest. "This is the place where the best sleepers go to snore their way through this spectacular show." She arrives to see many other sleepers with their blankets and pillows in their favorite spots. Snuggleford picks out a hammock, then goes to buy souvenirs. First there is a pajama parade. Then, one sleepy band after another takes the stage and puts the audience to sleep. In the morning, Snuggleford goes home and back to bed.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created digitally. They are surprising beautiful for digital work. There is plenty of detail and color and the pictures are soft and cuddly.

THE GOOD: This was a delightfully humorous book. It was a sweet parody of a concert festival. The sloth goes, not to stay awake to enjoy the show, but to be put to sleep in the most decadent way. The pajama parade includes designers such as Louis Futon and Alexander McDream. I love how they had booths set up for souvenirs such as from the bands and a Snoozefest t-shirt. She also brings home a souvenir sleep-mask that she puts to use right away. I absolutely loved the nicknames of the attendee's blankets. After reading this story, I desperately wanted to attend my own Snoozefest. It sounds like so much fun!
THE NOT AS GOOD: There is some humor in this book that will appeal to adults, but the younger kids will not get, such as the famous designer's sleepy names and the band names. There are also some pretty big words such as soporific.
