9780060730208: Sleepy Cadillac

A sleepy car floats up to a small boy's bedroom window and takes him for a nighttime drive. So begins a dreamy journey high above the clouds and over the moon -- all the way to Pajama Land, where cars circle and dance, and sleepy people dream the night away. Luminous pastels seem to glow with moonlight. Words, soft and soothing, will coax the most reluctant sleepyhead into bed.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–A '50s-era blue Cadillac convertible, tail fins alight, floats by a sleepy child's bedroom window and invites him into its soft snuggly seats for a ride. Powered with dreams, the vehicle floats above the fog into the star- and moonlit night. It travels over the ocean where "the dolphins sing a sleepy song," other drowsy cars circling with it as it travels. Other riders sit back and relax or cavort on car hoods, and finally "all the eyes droop and all the heads nod, and everyone dreams the night away." Then it's back down to the child's bedroom window where he climbs into bed, "soft and warm all around." Surrounded by the soft blues, blacks, and violets of the night sky, the car and its entourage have ample space to ride across full spreads. Hurd's loose, broad strokes, executed in pastels and pastel pencils; the swirls of white clouds with their sleeping inhabitants; and the faces with undefined features all combine to create a dreamy atmosphere. A bedtime journey that will lull tired travelers into a cozy night's sleep.–Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community College, CT
