OuterSpace Bedtime Race by Rob Sanders - NO

Sanders, Rob OuterSpace Bedtime Race, illustrated by Brian Won.  PICTURE BOOK.  Random House, 2015.  $17.  Content: G.  

Kids of all sorts all across the galaxy are getting ready for bed.  What do you think it looks like on every planet?  Hmm.  The title is very misleading, because there is no race involved in this story.  Instead, it is just a visit to each planet with a poetic musing about bedtime on the surface.  
The illustrations are the best part of the book, but even those fail to save this.  I was underwhelmed by the whole thing.  Next time, if you are going to call this “bedtime race”, then let’s have a race.
