Description

"'Bedtime!' said the mother. 'No!' said the boy". Determined to stay awake all night, the boy zooms off in his little red car into a magical land filled with larger-than-life toys. But the toys are all too sleepy to play, and the toy musicians lull the boy's car to sleep with a dreamy lullaby. How will the boy get home now? Luckily, someone is still awake, and on her way to pick up the boy and tuck him into bed.show more

Review quote

"As she did in The Bear under the Stairs (Dial, 1993), Cooper takes a gentle, wry look at a child's imagination. This charming story will soon become a favorite part of the bedtime ritual."--School Library Journal "The imaginary blends seamlessly with the real, and although children will probably take everything at face value at first, repeated reading will lead them to the wonderful discovery that the boy is really safe in his cozy home with his mom waiting patiently nearby."--Booklist   "The sumptuous, imaginative watercolors are replete with dreamy intent."--Kirkus Reviewsshow more
