Bedtime in the Forest

For every child who has ever begged to stay up later

 

Mick, Mack, and Molly, the three popular squirrel children, are back in action—but not when they should be. This time, they are up and out in the middle of the night. After all, the owl children are wide-awake and playing. So why can’t squirrel children stay up late and play, too?
