PreSchool-Grade 2. The Sandman, who sprinkles magic dust on tired children so they sleep soundly and dream sweet dreams, is dismayed to find Susannah wide awake. Not content to be up by herself, the girl starts a pillow fight to wake up her sleeping toys and pets. The Sandman, caught amid the flying feathers, must wait her out. When she tires, he is finally able to sprinkle her with his magic dust. Muted illustrations and the use of present-tense language complement the story and match its energy. Shifting perspectives and looming shadows give the pillow-fight scenes a sense of drama as the toys and pets grow in size and come to life, only to change back as everyone falls asleep. This gentle, child-centered story is sure to appeal to youngsters, particularly at bedtime.?Tana Elias, Meadowridge Branch Library, Madison, WI
