All creatures of the world find time to rest. And in this charming lullaby book, countless cozy animals settle down in their beds. Bears lie under their blankets, the fox snuggles beneath a tree in the light of the moon, and the monkey tucks his banana close beside him.
This brilliant pairing of author and illustrator brings us a vibrant yet elegant bedtime book that is sure to enchant young readers as they drift sweetly into their own dreams.

Publishers Weekly (STARRED review)
"A potential bedtime favorite. Deliciously fanciful scenarios, not zoological correctness, is the name of the game: camels sleep under quilts in bunk beds, while three seals slumber in armchairs balanced on the branches of a tree. . . . If even the crocodile, the snake, and the tiger are sound asleep, the creators seem to imply, nothing can threaten readers on their way to bed."
New York Times Book Review
"The juxtapositions are funny but unfrantic, gentled by the sweet couplets and piquant but restful paintings."
Wall Street Journal
"With their deep, jewel-like colors and comforting coziness, what small child wouldn't want to join this snoozing menagerie?"
