Synopses & Reviews
“Its time for bed, little cat, little cat / So snuggle in tight, thats right, like that.” The Australian author Mem Fox and the illustrator Jane Dyers 1993 bedtime favorite is now available in this padded board book edition. Even the most reluctant snoozers will find themselves lulled by the repetitive rhythms, as the parent sheep, cat, snake, and fish implore their babies to get some shuteye: “Its time for bed, little sheep, little sheep, / The whole wide world is going to sleep.” Dyers watercolor illustrations are bucolic and beautiful. A sweet, soothing lullaby.
