It's time for bed, but where is baby Ted? He's not baby Ted! Try and guess what he is instead. Whether baby Ted is pretending to be a snapping crocodile, squeaky mouse, or prickly porcupine, one thing is clear: this baby beastie is not headed for dreamland! But Dad helps his little animal get into pajamas, brush his teeth, and snuggle under the covers. With a quack, a snack, an cluck, and a tuck, baby Ted is ready for slumber in this winsome bedtime book.

PreS—When their evening story is done, a child crawls off and teases his father with, "I'm not baby Ted. I can't go to bed./Try and guess what I am instead." He moves his arms in a snapping motion, and Dad correctly guesses a baby crocodile. "We'll SNAP him up, WRAP him up,/and tuck him into bed." The game continues as Ted has a bedtime snack, goes to the potty, brushes his teeth, and eventually dives under the covers, challenging his father to identify a different animal impersonation each time. The interactive concept is a fun idea, although it goes on too long and some of the later rhymes do not work as well. The drawings are softly rendered in watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil, leaving plenty of white space to accommodate the pictures and large-type text. Swirling ribbons and cute little animals reflect the playful mood of this good-natured story. Though not a first purchase, this book could be a pleasant addition for bedtime story collections.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
