It's a big Margaret Wise Brown this season, from Harpers -- and there are lovely Garth Williams' pictures for a text unexceptional for this author. The story tells of a little raccoon who wanted to go out at night and "see the moon- and see the night- and know an owl- and how dark is dark?- and listen to the Whippoorwill -- and stay up all night and sleep all day" etc. (A familiar sound, eh?). And he does it. Simple and nice.
