About this item

Description



About the Book



In an innovative bedtime book for young readers, the fresh look of Caldecott Honor Medalist Zagarenski's luminous illustrations paired with Logue's poetic and unadorned language frame the very simple-sounding question: "does everything in the world go to sleep?" Full color.



Book Synopsis



A magical bedtime story, honored as a Caldecott Honor Book.

In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a child and her kind 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 lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny-like cadence: "Does everything in the world go to sleep?" the little girl asks.

Artist Pamela Zagarenski's rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with charming details that non-yet-sleepy children can examine for hours. A rare gem.



Review Quotes




"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 review --
