In an innovative bedtime book for young readers, the fresh look of Caldecott Honor Medalist Pamela Zagarenski's luminous illustrations paired with Mary Logue's poetic and unadorned language frame the very simple-sounding question: does everything in the world go to sleep? This is a book certain to give you good dreams!
Award-winning author Mary Logue has written more than twenty books for children. She lives on the Mississippi with writer Pete Hautman. This is her first book with Houghton Mifflin.
"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
