Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–In this flight of fancy, a young girl prepares for bed, gathering all of her stuffed animals from A to Z around her. Unfortunately one toy is missing, and struggling to stay awake, she tries to figure out which one it is and where it might be. Each rhyming page furthers the plot while addressing a letter of the alphabet using animals and adjectives starting with that letter. Though sometimes this is a stretch (Hairy Caterpillar for H and an unidentified insect called Queen for Q), readers get the idea. The plot itself is more confusing. Is this missing creature a stuffed animal or is it from the design on her quilt? The child continually checks each square, but the lost animal that turns up is actually a stuffed zebra that has fallen to the floor. The search itself drifts in and out of the child's dreams, and the cartoon, watercolor illustrations bring animals from the quilt to life, creating more confusion and busyness in the art. Young listeners may enjoy the rhyming words and alliteration, but the story itself is a snore.–Julie Roach, Watertown Free Public Library, MA
