It’s time for Siasi to go to bed, but she doesn’t want to brush her teeth or put away her toys. It’s so much more fun to play with all the animals of the Arctic! Wouldn’t everyone rather dance with polar bear, howl with the wolves, and swim with the fish instead of get ready for bed?
In this charming bedtime story, readers follow Siasi on a nighttime adventure as she comes up with excuse after excuse for why she’s not quite ready to go to bed.

The Globe and Mail
"Written in verse, following less of a narrative than a rocking rhythm, this book can serve as a modern lullaby for younger children."
School Library Journal
"While the concept is not new, seeing it through an Arctic lens makes this tale a valuable addition to the bedtime book genre...Highly recommended for most collections."
