Recommends it for: Children

Originality: 5
Illustrations: 4
Story: 3
BooBoo: 3

The only negative thing I can say about this book is that the rhythm of the words and thus the story is awkward. Aside from that this is an original story with lovely illustrations. Plus there's a dog and a baby on almost every page.

My son loved it (not difficult if cars are involved). It felt like the author was trying to be hip and abstract in the writing, he was just trying a little too hard for my taste.

Very slightly irritating in its tendency to lapse into word salad/free association, but captures the sleep-wake-sleep-wake restlessness of a small child very well, and my children both love it.

Was Simone's favorite bedtime book for a long time. Sometimes it feels long and I try to skip pages, but in general I like the lyricism and accompanying images.
