This was an interesting take on putting kids to sleep. It was quite different from what I had expected, but I still enjoyed it. The illustrations were great. There was a lot of detail infused on each drawing and I loved the color and style. But the pictures weren't overdone, they were subtle and still highly animated. I'm not sure how well it would have put me to sleep as a child, but I think other people will really enjoy it. I can see why it won a Caldecott Honor.
