Two talented artists pair up in this loving story about bedtime on a farm.
Lily can't fall alseep. The farm is much too noisy and Lily is much too curious. "Hush now, Lily," says Mother Rabbit as the full moon rises over the farm. But Lily wants to hear the golden-eyed duck sing its duck lullaby and the cow tell its bedtime story. So Mother Rabbit and Lily embark on a sleepy,barnyard adventure and discover that each animal has a special way of preparing for bedtime. Mother Rabbit and Lily snuggle up in the shadowy stable. And as quiet falls over the farm, the last lullaby of the night is Lily's sweet, little snore.

John Bendall-Brunello lives part of the year in Cambridge and part in Cannes in the South of France. He is the illustrator of numerous children's books, including MOUSE, MOLE AND THE FALLING STAR for Little Tiger Press.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-This gentle tale of a bunny's sleepless night has lots of charm. While Lily's mother carefully explains the sources of the many barnyard sounds preventing the curious rabbit from sleeping, some of the animals causing the disturbances come forward to share their nighttime comforts, lullabies, and bedtime stories with the tired creature. While their offerings do little to soothe Lily, the hens' straw beds intrigue her. When she finally snuggles down on one of her own, the sleepy horses awake to a new sound in the barn-Lily snoring peacefully. The soft, warm watercolor-and-pencil illustrations match the tone of this comforting tale. While this book is a grand storytime choice, it will also be terrific for one-on-one sharing.
