Booklist - 01/01/2015 Snuggleford Cuddlebun the Sloth is truly gifted when it comes to sleeping, so she’s very excited to be attending Snoozefest. This annual festival has it all: a pajama fashion show, bedtime snacks, and a lineup featuring soothing bands and crooners. Snuggleford settles down in her hammock with her teddy bear, blanket, and pillows and promptly drifts off, happily dreaming through the entire show. Snuggleford eventually wakes up and returns home, where she goes right to bed to start resting up for next year. The story is told in lilting rhyme, reminiscent of a lullaby. Litten’s illustrations in soft pastels gradually fade to darker hues as evening descends, resulting in a stage scene softly backlit by nightlights. Parents will identify with the festival vibe, complete with laid-back crowds, posters, T-shirts, and band memorabilia. It is refreshing to have a protagonist who actually delights in sleeping as opposed to the slumber-challenged characters in Margie Palatini’s No Nap! Yes Nap! (2014) and Doreen Cronin’s Click, Clack, Peep (2015). Everyone will be yawning by the end of this cozy tale. - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
