I love the way Stella creates a mini sleep-world for each of her animals. I wish I had thought of this for my own wide-eyed preschoolers! I also like the way the story is told in prose, but the imaginary sleep-worlds are described in rhyme, giving a gently rocking sound to the scene.
Jimmy Liao's watercolors show the wide-awake Frog with huge eyes open, dangling from the head of the bed, and dancing on sleepy Stella's tummy, then later, eyes closed, cuddled up to Stella in bed. A charming book for children aged 3 to 6.
