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 blanket" 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 non-sleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.

Editorial Reviews

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"
