Jimmy ‘Giggle’ Rees leaps from the screen to the page with Bedtime Sorted!, his rip-roaring debut picture book illustrated by Briony Stewart.
As the beloved star of iconic ABC Kids TV show Giggle and Hoot, which filmed for 11 years and is still broadcast today, Jimmy captured the hearts of generations of Australian kids—not to mention their parents. Since the pandemic hit, his hilarious videos parodying ‘The guy who decides packaging’ and ‘Meanwhile in Australia’ have kept Aussies laughing throughout lockdown, making him one of the most-viewed Australian TikTok personalities with views across Jimmy’s social media channels in any given week outnumbering Aussies watching television!
Bedtime Sorted! riffs off one of Jimmy’s most popular parenting videos about the bedtime excuses that families everywhere will know all too well.
Collaborator Briony Stewart’s vibrant illustrations brilliantly amplify the humour of this book, featuring Mum (duck), Dad (beaver), kids (platypuses) and pet (lizard, naturally), with plenty of funny Easter eggs for parents hidden throughout.
