Illustrated by Karen Katz
Endpapers: Bright orange
Here's a sleepy nighttime book that is vibrantly colored and wide awake - it doesn't really seem very sleepy to me. I adore Karen Katz's paintings, but his one doesn't seem to match the worrds. And Brown's words - written and copyrighted in 1953, seem so old-fashioned. Well....I guess they are....strike me down, now, lightning bolt!
Unfortunately, this book just doesn't work for me, as much as I'd love it to.
