"No more bedtime. I'm gone." From the first page, featuring an image of a fuming kid who cycles across the room and runs away at bedtime, this lively story will draw young preschoolers with its cumulative farce and sense of rebellion. As understanding Dad helps the little girl pack, he warns her about what she will need: first a friend, so she packs her "friendliest dinosaur" toy; then snacks for her dinosaur, so she packs food; then a ferocious dog to guard the snacks that she just packed for the dinosaur; and so on. The scenarios get wilder and wilder with each page turn, and the fantasy is extended in the hilariously detailed, pencil-and-digital illustrations, which lead up to spreads showing the girl packing a lamp, which needs an electrical outlet, so she carries the house on her back, but then she needs Dad to mow the lawn, so she packs him, too. Underlying the laughs, it's the girl's warm bond with her father that forms the heart of this high-spirited story. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
