Snuggleford Cuddlebun is the sleepiest of sloths. In fact, the only thing that disrupts her rest is the chance to go to Snoozefest, an entire musical festival devoted to nappers and sleepyheads. The seats are all hammocks, warm milk is available for all, and with bands like the Nocturnal Nesters playing—well, it's no wonder that Snuggleford might have accidentally slept through the whole thing.

This just may be the cuddliest of nuzzle-wuzzle books. I mean, it just doesn't stop! Eveything in it is just so darn cuddly! Snuggleford lives in Snoozeville, and takes Schluffy Street to get to the Nuzzledome, where (of course) Snoozefest is being held. And don't forget your Snoozeticket. Or blanky named Woobee. For extra cuddling. Gah! The snuggle-ness of it all! I just want to go cuddle a child and read this as their bedtime story!

Okay, I'll be a bit more controlled now. The illustrations have just the right amount of softness and whimsy, but are still vivid and full of color. The text has a simple rhyming scheme, making it a perfect read-aloud. It's just like a big, hilarious lullaby. Really. Give it a try. Although, be warned, it does make you sleepy!
