Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Baby sail the seven seas

Safely in my arms

When the waves go up and down

You are safe from harm.”

From Margaret Wise Brown, author of the beloved Goodnight Moon, comes a previously unpublished collection of charming lullabies, gorgeously illustrated by 12 award-winning artists. The roster of celebrated names includes Carin Berger, whose The Little Yellow Leaf was a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book; Eric Puybaret, who brought the bestselling Puff, the Magic Dragon to life on the page; Coretta Scott King Honor Award winner Sean Qualls; and Caldecott Honor medalist Melissa Sweet. An accompanying CD, with lilting songs beautifully composed and sung by Emily Gary and Tom Proutt, makes this the perfect gift to wish children a sweet goodnight.

 
The illustrators are:
Jonathan Bean * Carin Berger * Sophie Blackall * Linda Bleck * Renata Liwska * Christopher Silas Neal  * Zachariah OHora * Eric Puybaret * Sean Qualls *  Isabel Roxas * Melissa Sweet * Dan Yaccarino 

Review:

"Twelve talented illustrators interpret gentle poems by the late Brown, all but three of which have never before been published. In an introduction, Amy Gary, editor of Brown's estate, describes finding hundreds of the writer's unpublished manuscripts 20 years ago, a 'treasure of a lifetime' that contained (among many other works) the verse in this volume. In keeping with the 'goodnight' theme, the poems tend to have the muted and contemplative tone of a lullaby, even when the subject isn't sleep. For 'Song to Estyn,' Eric Puybaret provides a gauzy image of a child in a sailor's outfit held snugly by his father on the deck of an ocean liner ('Baby, sail the seven seas/ Safely in my arms'); Linda Bleck strikes a more comedic note in her midcentury retro illustrations of wide-eyed forest creatures for 'Goat on the Mountain.' Animals figure into many of the poems, and Renata Liwska, Melissa Sweet, Zachariah OHora, and other contributors create strong connections to the text in their artwork. Musicians Tom Proutt and Emily Gary turn each poem into a song on an accompanying CD. A rewarding and visually wide-ranging collection. Ages 3 — 6. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

And dress by yellow candle-light.

In summer quite the other way,
