Acclaimed artist Laura Dronzek reimagines this timeless classic about bedtime in luminous, gorgeous art. This is a book that belongs on every child's nightstand along with Goodnight Moon and Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site.

A little girl says good-night and finds the perfect beds for each and every animal, for dolls big and small, and even for a railroad train. The elephant belongs in the jungle, the dog belongs in the doghouse, and the train belongs on its tracks, of course—but wait! In a gentle surprise ending, no matter where their beds should be, each animal or object is a toy. And so they all belong tucked into bed with the little girl because she loves them all. Laura Dronzek's cozy, sumptuous illustrations are the perfect complement to Phyllis Rowand's timeless text. This is a book that will find its place beside—or in!—every young reader's bed.
