[Mortimer is the story] of a little boy who won't go to sleep at night and who drives his family crazy with his rowdiness ... [It] reads as though it was written by a parent driven frantic by one of the contemporary but compulsive stages of childrearing ... [It is] of tremendous appeal to kids and parents at the same stage. (Globe and Mail)

My kids love the full page colourful illustration that is just full of things happening. They spend the time on each page and look around in the small detail. My young one points at the ball in the corner, teddy bear sitting on the dresser in one of the pages. Now as an adult, I can relate more ... "GO TO SLEEP!"
In my home I own almost every one of Robert Munsch’s first publishing's. This is because his books were humorous and relative to myself. I consider Mortimer one of my favorites because I looked for attention and never wanted to go to sleep as a child as well, so I comprehend to the plot. My mom singing the song to me is another cheerful recollection of my childhood. His books are compiled with such ingenuity that disregarding them is a difficult task for almost anyone.Read more ›
This is a GREAT bedtime book that allows you to make up silly voices and even sing a song. What a great way to end your day and spend quality time with your kids. I recommend this book to children between the ages of 2-7.
The boys are so wound up after reading this book, they won't go to sleep. So Mortimer has to be read early in their story-time hour.
Mortimer (like most stories by Robert Munch) is cute and quirky and wonderfully illustrated. The best part is that you won't get bored reading it to your children over, and over, and over, and over.....
