KIRKUS REVIEW

Silly business ensues when the moon rises over a rural home, and two young brothers fall asleep. Listen for a “Clip-clop, clip-clop” of approaching hooves. Into the bedroom a rotund and jolly Holstein is sneaking, clearly relishing her job. As the household doggy looks on, the jolly cow lifts the covers and wetly bestows a loving, big, pink-tongued, “Sluuurrpp!,” thereby glossing and molding the hair of the slumbering little ones. Now the mystery of those stand-up bed-head hairdos is forever solved! The twinkle-eyed cow moves on as the morning sun rises above her. The robustly colorful paintings, which favor orange and cobalt blue, conjure tender and humorous scenes of snuggly children and the bovine nighttime prankster. Brevity and true whimsy imbue this breezy bedtime rhyme. This is sure to be a sweet beginning to a restful night and will be giggled over and gobbled up; lickety-split—a laptime favorite! (Picture book. 2-5)
