Ian Whybrow is perhaps best known for his Harry And The Bucketful Of Dinosaurs books, and for Little Wolf. He is a former winner of the Smarties Prize and has published several hugely successful books for Macmillan, including The Christmas Bear (0 333 73550 1 - to be reissued for Christmas 2003) and The Tickle Book (0 333 78151 1). Tiphanie Beeke is rapidly establishing a reputation as one of Britain's top young illustrators. She has published a number of picture books, including the successful Snow Friends, also written by Ian Whybrow. This is her first picture book for Macmillan.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1--This engaging bedtime story begs for participation from children. A sleepy boy, clad in his pajamas and slippers, heads across the farm toward home. Along the way, he picks up an entourage of animals, one by one, and the friendly but noisy creatures follow him. The story is told through a series of rhyming verses, all of which should be completed by the word "bed." The rhyme is interrupted each time by the appearance of a loquacious animal. For example, "A boy, a duck, a horse, a sheep/look carefully where they tread./They tiptoe past the pigsty./ 'This is the way to...' 'Oink!'" This clever device allows readers to identify each one by appearance and by vocalization. The illustrations resemble the work Beeke did for Tara Jaye Morrow's Mommy Loves Her Baby/Daddy Loves His Baby(HarperCollins, 2003). Her full-page, mixed-media pictures are captivating, providing an eye-pleasing blend of colors, textures, and facial expressions. A playful romp.--Liza Graybill, Worcester Public Library, MA
