Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the sky grows dark

and the moon glows bright,

everyone goes to sleep . . .

except for the watchful owl!

With a spare, soothing text and beautifully rich and textured illustrations of a starry night, this is the perfect “book of sleep.” Join the owl on his moonlit journey as he watches all the other animals settle in for the night: some sleep standing up, while some sleep on the move! Some sleep peacefully alone, while others sleep all together, huddled close.

Il Sung Na makes his American debut with this gorgeous bedtime offering. While each animal rests in its own special way, little ones will also drift off to a cozy sleep.

Synopsis:

In an innovativeand#160;bedtime book for young readers,and#160;the fresh look ofand#160;Caldecott Honor Medalist Pamela Zagarenski's luminous illustrationsand#160;paired with Mary Logue's poetic andand#160;unadorned languageand#160;frame the very simple-sounding question: does everything in the world go to sleep?and#160;This is aand#160;book certain to give you good dreams!

Synopsis:

2013 Randolph Caldecott Honor Award

In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny and#8211; like cadence: and#8220;Does everything in the world go to sleep?and#8221; the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides and#8220;in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,and#8221; she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenskiand#8217;s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.

Synopsis:

A Book of Sleep was his first picture book, followed by The Thingamabob and Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit (Spring 2011), which are also available from Knopf.
