As Mother Earth repeatedly tries to put her daughter to sleep, she's met with a repetitive reply ("not for a while") and a variety of stalling tactics. "Each spread offers a number of clues as to the wild child's identity, most of which are smoothly integrated into the artwork," PW said. Ages 3-8. (Sept.)
