Description

2013 Randolph Caldecott Honor Award In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny - like cadence: "Does everything in the world go to sleep?" the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides "in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets," she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenski's rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.show more

Review quote

"This deeply satisfying story offers what all children crave when letting go--security and a trusted companion."--Kirkus, starred review "Touched with enchantment . . . This may put little ones to sleep, but they'll have a lot to look at before they close their eyes."--Booklist, starred review "Zagarenski's dreamy mixed-media illustrations are as calm and comforting as Logue's understated prose."--Horn Book "Zagarenski's paintings take Logue's story to places marvelously distant in thought and time; each spread holds treasures to find even after several readings."--Publishers Weekly, starred review "Logue's text is reassuring and rhythmic, but it is the fine detail and plush atmospherics of Zagarenski's layered multimedia illustrations that make the book shine."--New York Times Online "The common theme of a child not ready for bed receives fresh treatment here. . . . [A] memorable picture book."--School Library Journal, starred reviewshow more
