A boy is so sleepy that he vows nothing will get him out of his morning bed, neither peas and beans nor the United States Marines.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
Please let me be.
Please go away.
I am NOT going to get up today!

The alarm can ring.
The birds can peep.
My bed is warm.
My pillow's deep.
Today's the day I'm going to sleep.

I don't care if kids are getting up
right now all over town. I'm the kid who ISN'T getting up.
I'm staying down.

Publisher Description:
"A rhyming story that is full of laughs. 'The alarm can ring. The birds can peep....Today's the day I'm going to sleep,' says a lazy boy one morning, and despite a pail of icy water, television coverage, and the arrival of the Marines, he vows to stay in bed - and he does! The repetition of concepts and words will keep children turning the pages, as will the energetic drawings. A sure draw for early readers." -
