|* "Repeated, pleasingly surreal lines of verse convey the sense of drifting into slumber...a keeper." -- Publishers Weekly , starred review "A quiet book for sharing in a cozy setting." --School Library Journal "The blue-hued mixed-media illustrations soothingly depict a farm as it moves from dusk to night and bring a hush to the book--and no doubt its readers as well." -- Booklist "Christopher Silas Neal's lovely and serene illustrations, in matte twilight hues of blue and rose, suggest a sparkling nighttime world that is simultaneously vast and cozy. Clearly Ray has worked to make her language dense and [Margaret Wise] Brown-like, and at times you can feel a gentle incantatory force." -- The New York Times "The book begins at dusk, the sky slowly going from pink to blue to black and starry, the shadowy gray tones of the illustrations a consummate match for the restful mood of the text." -- Horn Book Magazine|
