KIRKUS REVIEW

In this sequel to Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea (2004), a little girl with a huge head and bulgy eyes climbs up a tree at night, greeting various rain forest animals. In this imaginative bedtime story, the author describes the unnamed girl’s adventure through a short, patterned text of six lines, with the titular phrase as the introductory line. After meeting nine animals, she says good night, first to the moon and all the rainforest creatures, and then to her father as she returns to reality. The final page shows the little girl asleep in her bunk bed with all her stuffed animals around her, each one corresponding to the rainforest creatures. Petrone uses a bold touch in her digitally produced illustrations, placing bright animals and splashes of jungle-green leaves against a starry sky. (Picture book. 3-6)
