About the Author:

Greg Straight has worked in the field of visual arts for more than a decade and has created signature illustrations for clients such as Air New Zealand, Microsoft, NZ Tourism and Huffer. Melinda Szymanik is a well-known New Zealand author of numerous books for children including The House That Went to Sea and Made With Love as well as several books for young adults. She has twice been short-listed for the Joy Cowley Award, in 2003 and 2006.


From School Library Journal:

Toddler-PreS—"While you are sleeping, the world turns...." Soothing text and jewel-tone screen prints present tranquil images of what goes on while a child sleeps. Despite initial references to a broader global setting, there is only one day scene, which feels somewhat out of place in the series of nighttime tableaux. More disappointing, humans are exclusively represented as white and dark-haired. The illustrations are accessible and lushly somnolent, but their literal following of the text prevents them from being truly extraordinary. These missed opportunities are frustrating, because the book comes so close to being something more. Phrases like birds with full moon eyes and the moon jumps over cows bring a lyrical quality to this bedtime book, but the text trails off without closure. Readers looking for a more global view of the world beyond the bedroom should turn to Clotilde Perrin's At the Same Moment, Around the World or Bob Graham's phenomenal How the Sun Got to Coco's House. VERDICT A good addition to collections in need of bedtime books, but it falls short in comparison with stronger titles.—Rachel Anne Mencke, St. Matthew's Parish School, Pacific Palisades, CA
