While the rest of her family sleeps, a young girl takes her little brother—whom she knows will be frightened by the windstorm raging around their seaside house—on an imaginary voyage with his favorite animal, the humpback whale. The bed lifts and the waters welcome them as they embark on an undersea odyssey to swim and breach with the gentle creature who rocks them gently to sleep in a rumbling, shimmering hammock made of waves.

About the Author:

Josephine Nobisso is the author of Grandpa Loved and Grandma's Scrapbook. She lives in Westhampton Beach, New York.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- A gentle nocturnal fantasy in which a girl reassures her younger brother with a soothing rhythmic evocation of a free-floating moonlight swim with a smiling, singing whale. This is more of a mood piece than a story. Although at times a trifle sweet, the text's lilting cadence will make an additional bedtime read-aloud. While the loving older sister is a nice touch, some readers might wonder why the children appear to be alone in a big, dark house. The attractive paintings move from the rich golden glow of a candle-lit bedroom to the watery blue-green hues of the sea, making good use of unusual undersea perspectives. It is unfortunate that while the whale and the water are depicted with movement and energy, the children themselves are stiff and awkwardly posed. --Kate McClelland, Perrot Memorial Library, Greenwich, CT
