Nothing's sweeter and better to help a child say "good night" than this endearing, charmingly illustrated tale of a boy trying to convince his dog to take a nap. Just like a loving parent, he places Petey the pup into his doggie bed, gives the animal his own stuffed toy to curl up with, wraps the pooch in a soft, warm blanket, and promises him a snack and a trip to the park when he wakes. But Petey has things other than sleep on his mind--and soon the smart dog has turned the tables on the tired little boy. The final image of the puppy playing while his owner sleeps will delight both children and their parents.

PreS–In this simple, sweet story, a pajama-clad child tries to coax his puppy into going to sleep, but the playful pooch is having none of it. In vain, the boy offers Petey a cuddly blanket, a teddy bear, and the promise of a bowl of treats when he wakes up. Finally, after warning his pet that he'll be too tired to go to the park the next day, the youngster lies down in the dog bed next to Petey and falls fast asleep, while the mischievous canine jumps up again to chase a ball. Large, colorful illustrations capture the earnestness of the child and the exuberance of the pup. Featuring pastel-hued backgrounds and understated textures, the uncluttered artwork keeps the focus on the characters and is appropriate for the straightforward text. Right on for the youngest picture-book audience.– Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
