In this corner, brother and sister duo Peanut Brother and Jellyfish are ready to square off against Dangerous Daddo and bedtime. But unexpected surprises and appearances ramp up the event to new heights. Wrestlefest serves as a great allegory for the struggles of getting everyone ready for bed, but also shows a loving family being silly with each other. The bright color palette makes the characters stand out against an often solid background, and is equally impressive during the wrestling scenes. Artist Player mixes anime-style action shots, complete with extreme close-ups, with sweet scenes of hugs and kisses. The family is depicted as having light brown skin, and it is implied that mom works outside the home and dad is the primary caregiver. A solid purchase for most libraries, and a delightful bedtime pick.
