Lights out by Arthur Geisert( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 2,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mama and Papa are firm: lights out at eight o'clock. But their little piglet is afraid of the dark. They say, "If you can figure something out, go ahead." So the piglet devises an ingenious series of contraptions that allow him to obey his parents while still keeping the light on long enough to fall asleep. Dominoes, tricycles, bowling balls, and baseball bats play a part as each action and reaction leads gradually to the final tug on the lamp's switch. Follow Arthur Geisert's detailed etchings as they reveal each step of kinetic wonder leading gradually to lights out
