This (at least in the Swedish original) is my all-time favourite going-to-bed story for kids. It is perfectly written on two levels, so it is just as amusing for the adult as the child... Astrid Lindgren's wonderfully dry sense of humour suffuses the whole book. If you have a child who won't go to bed in the evening, you are OBLIGED to get this!

Thank you R&S Books and Barbara Lucas for bringing this to the US. Sweet and magical story, with beautiful and hilarious illustrations. I'm not sure how it is that seeing all the different animals convinces (Larry) that he should go to bed, though. Some are more compliant, others are naughtier, what's the lesson? Just that everybody has to sleep sometime?

Anyway, this is quite likely my favorite set of illustrations by Wikland. They're pretty enough for me, detailed enough for many rereads, a

What a beautiful book!
My children absolutely loved it. A charming story about a boy named Larry who didn't want to go to bed. Sweet tale is accompanied by beautiful and detailed illustrations.

We had this book for almost two years now- it's still a huge hit, and a frequent request at bedtime, the little bird is my daughter's (3) favorite forever.

DAS Buch, um Kinder ins Bett zu bringen! Meine Mutter las es mir immer vor und machte dabei Späße, indem sie sich künstlich über die kleinen Kaninchenkinder echauffierte, die eine riesige Unordnung vor dem Schlafengehen machten-ich hatte dabei immer unglaublich viel Spaß und konnte als vor Lachen kaum atmen! Wenn man Kinder hat, ist das wohl eines der absoluten Muss-Bücher für das Vorleseregal!!

When I saw this book at the library and noticed that Astrid Lindgren was the author, I wanted to read it at once. Sadly, it wasn't as amazing as her books usually are. While I get the fact that she's trying to show little kids not to make a fuss about bedtime, it wasn't that endearing or, what I would think would be all that motivating.
