Some of these old Whitman Tell-A-Tale books from my childhood are so sugary sweet, you can almost get a tummy ache just reading them! As is the case with Amy's Long Night (1970) by Nancy Garber, and featuring some seriously cute illustrations by Lynn Wheeling. All lil Amy wants for her birthday is to stay up late, is that too much to ask??!! I can remember those days of forced exile to the bed, tucked away hours before the monsterama late show would even come on Channel 30. And the strange feeling of finally getting our wish, only to realize at sudden dawn that we somehow fell asleep without even knowing it, around the same time we usually went to bed anyway! The sights, the sounds-- the snacks! It may not have lasted ALL night, but it was all fun none the less. Your own adorable late night rite of passage begins now here at AEET, enjoy!
