*A starred review from School Library Journal for the print edition
*From Publishers Weekly:
For children who find that the hours between bedtime and darkness are hard to pass, this book offers welcome relief. Fantasies that lead eventually to the Land of Nod run rampant in the head of a boy who must go to bed before nightfall. Begin’s splendidly detailed, deliciously colored paintings are filled with comical touches such as tourist penguins, with sardines hanging from the pockets of their "jams," lining up to buy ice cubes from a polar bear. By setting the pictures in progressive stages of darkness the artist gradually draws the curtain on consciousness until the last page shows the darkened room of the peacefully sleeping boy.
