About the Author:

Aurore Jesset was born and raised in Paris. After completing her studies in psychology, she worked in a center for teenagers and adults. Today she has her own practice.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—A child leaves her favorite toy at the doctor's office and ponders its fate should they fail to be reunited "RIGHT NOW!" On each spread, Jesset's speculation about the beloved stuffed animal's current state is matched with Korthues's Tim Burton-esque illustrations rendered in vibrant colors, often muted to depict the nighttime setting. The simple, rhythmic prose recalls a small child's inner dialogue or storytelling voice, but the tenor of the book is set by the slightly creepy, stylized pencil drawings that accompany it. "Mommy says I should sleep with another toy tonight"; readers look at the toys to choose from and see among them a cockeyed, heavy-lidded owl and a bear with a self-satisfied smile. When the child imagines the garbage truck devouring Loopy, readers see the bunny's ears hanging from the truck's mechanical jaws. On a nearby rooftop, a man in a stovepipe hat sits on a chimney. Stark streets and surreal inhabitants, like birds on strings, make appearances as Loopy's owner's imagination takes over the night. What a relief when the doorbell rings, the doctor returns Loopy, and "Everything is all right now." Originally published in Switzerland, this enjoyable story's distinctly foreign flavor may be offered as a contrast to Mo Willems's very American Knuffle Bunny Too (Hyperion, 2007), which features a similar nighttime bunny recognizance mission.—Lisa Egly Lehmuller, St. Patrick's Catholic School, Charlotte, NC
