Written by Jim Averbeck; illustrated by Tricia Tusa
Tricia Tusa has illustrated roughly 9 zillion wonderful picture books (check out the recent Fred Stays with Me) but in this good-night story she really shines! She has such a delicate touch with detail and balance. Her art is charming without being sticky-sweet or precious. I love the design of the book: illustrations on one side, the words on the other--until the end of the book when "off goes the lamp and in comes the moon" and the full-page spreads are infused with exactly the right color of blue.
Get the book and slip into some sweet dreams!
