PreSchool-Grade 2—Bedtime is a surreal adventure for Julius, a monkey. In his dreams, "anything is possible." He can sport an elephant trunk or a potato body, visit a castle in the clouds or a frosted-cupcake village, or become a rock star in outer space. The text is a series of credulous exclamations: "WOW! I'm flying!" "Now I'm a GIANT BEAST set loose on an unsuspecting metropolis!" The digitally rendered illustrations are bright and bold. Julius's animal friends populate detailed scenes aboard pirate ships and in underground caverns. After a night of endless possibilities, Julius appears disappointed when he wakes up in the morning and leaves his dream world. The busy cartoons seem ill-matched for a good-night story and, like the text, tend to fall flat.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada
