    For a certain brown-skinned suburban family, the weekend means just one thing: Friday Night Wrestlefest and the Battle to the Bedtime! Unseen ringside announcers narrate as, in a living room turned wrestling ring, Dangerous Daddoo ("He's mad. He's bad. He's DAD!") squares off against the Tag Team Twins and Big Bald Baby. Following a salvo of kisses, Daddoo is poised to win, until Mama-Rama's surprise arrival turns the tide. She double-crosses Daddoo, all but ending bedtime—until Big Bald Baby unleashes a "Clear-the-Room Diaper of Doom!" Fox's unconventional bedtime book is bold, bright, and buzzing with energy, thanks to the punchy text and dynamic illustrations. This one is more an ode to roughhousing and family fun than to pro wrestling, but Player's creative character designs will inspire young readers to invent their own in-ring personae. A well-executed romp, perfect for those little movers who need to burn some energy before finally hitting the mat(tress). Grades K-2. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
