Biscuit, the cute, yellow puppy, is the hero of a series of books by Alyssa Satin Capucilli. The action focuses on the puppy using any excuse possible to avoid going to bed. The story contains a lot of repetitive language and pictures and, through these devices, will maintain your child's interest.

Children will certainly relate with the storyline (and age-old struggle!) of not wanting to go to sleep. Your child will also love to repeat the short, recurring phrases. They also will bond with you as you "woof woof!" like Biscuit does on each of the book's pages. With sound effects and a humorous storyline, the book will keep your child very entertained.

The first time I heard about this book was when I told my niece Emily that I got a new kitten named Biscuit. "Biscuit is a dog!" she yelled and didn't believe me that Biscuit could be the name of my cat too. This book made a huge impression on her, and she still barely believes me that my cat is names Biscuit. To Emily, Biscuit will always be her favorite yellow puppy.

Alyssa Satin Capucilli was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1957. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College, and pursued her interest in dance, becoming a professional dancer and dance instructor. Though Capucilli had written stories, poems, and even puppet shows as a child, she didn't consider a career as a writer until after her own two children were born. To this day she sees herself as both a dancer and a writer, and the two professions complement each other nicely: dancing is, in her words, "telling stories in another way," and readers of her children's books can attest to the rhythm of her language. Since 1994, she has written more than 15 books for children, and her work has been translated into French, Hebrew, Afrikaans, Greek, and Bulgarian.

Capucilli lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, with her husband and children. They have a chocolate Labrador retriever named Huckleberry, who likes to watch the author at work.
