Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375814140, Hardcover)

The day is long for a cat with a stroller full of kittens, a baby sailing a boat on the sea, the man in the moon, and a frog who has been hopping all day in the heat. It's time for everyone to lie down and rest. One by one, each sleepy critter finds a place in which to curl up for the night. "Hushabye hushabye hush."

Award-winning author-illustrator John Burningham has created a perfect bedtime book for sleep-resistant children. The rhythmic repetition of "hushabye" lulls readers into contentment, and the oh-so-sleepy-eyed baby, fish, goose, frog, and others will soon have young ones rubbing their eyes as well. Burningham's dreamy, scratchy line drawings against rich, densely colored backgrounds are strikingly beautiful. Each one is worthy of its own frame. Two-page spreads feature the full-color illustrations on one side, with text and a related line drawing on the other side. Burningham has written and illustrated more than 20 eye-catching books for kids, including Cloudland, Mr. Gumpy's Outing, and Mr. Gumpy's Motor Car. (Ages 2 to 6) --Emilie Coulter
