“Told in jaunty, rollicking rhymes that are enlivened by colorful, humorous digital illustrations, this robot version of a bedtime story demonstrates that, no matter how energetic a little ‘bot’ may be, there inevitably comes a time when ‘batteries are running low!’” —Kirkus Reviews

A little robot would rather go on an intergalactic adventure than go to sleep in this rhyming romp that breaks all the bedtime rules.

In a busy robot town
bots begin to power down.
All except for Bitty Bot!
Feeling sleepy?
Maybe not!

Charming text in rhyming verse tells the story of energetic Bitty Bot, who, instead of going to bed decides to build a rocket and go on a space adventure! Sweet and fun to read aloud, this bedtime book is perfect for tots and bots of all varieties.

Tim McCanna is the author of several picture books including BITTY BOT, BARNYARD BOOGIE!, JACK B. NINJA, and WATERSONG, which received a starred review from Kirkus and was included in the New York Public Library’s 2017 list of Best Books for Kids.

Tim grew up Missouri and spent his undergrad years at TCU, then earned an MFA in Dramatic Writing for Musical Theatre from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. In 2004, he wrote and produced the off-off Broadway musical, THE COSMIC CALAMITIES OF HENRY NOODLE. After that, he sang and played accordion in a Denver-based folk band called the Hobo Nickels.

Around 2009, he had two young kids and was reading lots of picture books to them at bedtime. He grew a love and appreciation for the art form and started writing stories of his own. His debut picture book, TEENY TINY TRUCKS, came out in 2013. He signed with a literary agent in 2014, and since had the privilege to publish books with Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books, Scholastic/Orchard Books, and Abrams Appleseed.Visit Tim at timmccanna.com.
