A mother explains to her child why it's time to go to sleep

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From School Library Journal:

As a child prepares for bed, he questions his mother about the end of the day. The two take a journey beyond the bedroom, above the countryside, past city, sea, mountains, and stars to the land of dreams. Then the mother can leave the peaceful sleeper floating in a bed beneath the silent moon. As in many bedtime tales, Sage's story is slight. Instead of creating comfort through attention to the familiar nursery world as in Goodnight Moon , he enlarges the child's vision by finding a place in a well-ordered but expanding universe. Hutton's larger-than-life figures, which work well in his illustrations of mythic tales, create a transcendent quality that threatens to overwhelm the slim text. Cozy this is not, but the pages exude a quietness and majesty unusual in bedtime stories. --Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
