The story begins, "In a blue room, Alice bounces, wide-awake past bedtime," and I am intrigued because the room is clearly not blue. Alice's mother brings her things that Alice rejects because they are not blue: lilacs and lilywhites that "give off a gentle scent," orange tea cooling in a brown cup, "lullaby bells to sing [her:] to sleep. When Alice asks for the moon, Mama whispers, "Here it comes," and the magic begins. Lovely read-a-loud. Lovely illustrations. A necessary bedtime book in a market of too many bedtime stories.
