Review quote

In her first book for young children, cartoonist Carre repeats key phrases in the text to help beginning readers... Tippy's calm, sleepy suppositions clash deliciously with the gradually increasing disorder found in the accompanying panels. Young readers will delight in all the crazy details: the mice dancing on the headboard of Tippy's bed; the mole's hilarious devotion to the bear; the goat chewing Tippy's hair as the story ends. Carre skillfully employs a limited color palette, with warm oranges underscoring the messy mayhem of Tippy's room and cool midnight blues and slate grays providing a serene backdrop for Tippy's late-night ramblings. --The Horn Book This quirky comic for early readers offers simple panels with easy-to-find details and monochromatic color schemes-orange for the day and shades of blue for the night. ... Consistent with the Toon Book line, tips for reading comics with children appear in the back matter. Carre's retro and dreamy illustrations readily lend themselves to visual literacy practices: kids can "ham it up" with sound effects (bumps, scrapes, and animal sounds), and parents and educators can let children guess about the context of the pictures. --School Library Journalshow more
