Summary
A hilarious must-read for kids who like to get up in the wee hours of the morning and for parents who long to sleep in, perfect for fans of Goodnight Already!

Both children and adults will relate to this send-up of early risers and the parents who- yawn! -love them. Kids love to get up early-really early, before the sun is up early, before the newspaper is delivered early. Parents don't love getting up quite so early. But that doesn't stop this energetic, young hamster from trying to wake up Dad at the crack of dawn. Maybe Dad can figure out a way to get his child to sleep in?
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "With the moon still hanging in the night sky, a wide-eyed hamster pounces on his sleeping father, proudly shrieking the title's message. Eaton (Two Dumb Ducks) captures their punchy back-and-forth in speech balloons, with the groggy father becoming alert in a hurry after learning that his little one has "been up for a while" and even made pancakes ("Or tried to..."). "We're out of paper towels," adds the small hamster, and a page turn shows the fallout from the pancake-making fiasco, with flour pouring onto the floor, a sudsy sink overflowing, and other disasters in the making, such as a stand mixer resting on a barstool perched on the counter. Eaton's digitally colored pen-and-ink drawings have as much energy as his young hero, and the divide between the protagonist's innocence and the chaos he leaves in his wake creates comedy that kids and adults can appreciate equally, if separately. While everyone is sleeping at book's end (humorously, the hamster's mother has slept through the entire exchange), the mischievous ending suggests that this is only a brief respite. Ages 5-8.
