KIRKUS REVIEW

 An amiable bedtime tale about a young girl who tries to get her stuffed toys to settle down at bedtime, even though none of them are sleepy. Bunny, Mouse, Duck, Bear, and Pig all have demands--to finish planting seeds, have a picnic in bed, brush their teeth, and get drinks. After the tussle, they discover that poor Mouse has fallen under the bed and must be rescued by brave Daisy. Safe in bed, Mouse tells a story, Daisy falls asleep, and all the toys whisper goodnight. Gerstein (The Giant, 1995, etc.) works in a bold style, featuring close-ups of the animals and Daisy done in oil and pen- and-ink. The story will appeal to parents faced with active children at bedtime; listeners will recognize the ploys of the toys and be soothed. (Picture book. 3-7)
