Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Inspired by Field's bedtime poem with its night sky of "twinkling foam," Westerman (The Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat) conjures forth an eerie, luminous sea- and skyscape, aglitter with splendid silver "herring fish" stars. Three children and their cat enact the roles of Field's fishermen as they sail off in a wooden shoe boat, its sail made from a patched sheet. While not surrealistic, the characters and setting are thoroughly dreamlike. The artist's predominantly blue-green palette influences not only the pictures of the sea and moon, but also the children's faces. They stare like ghostly sleepwalkers, their countenances reflecting the blue of the sky, while the crater-mottled moon floats off through the sea's ruffled waves. The night-as-sea illustrations echo the imagery of the text, but Westerman adds more action with the children returning home, anchoring their boat to the chimney and climbing through a gabled window to their bed. Westerman's inventive design elements (the real bedroom's quilt and decor are similar to the visual motifs in the dreamscape) provide a soothing accompaniment for the familiar text, a staple for bedtime reading. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1?This classic bedtime poem appears in a newly illustrated edition; previous versions include those illustrated by Susan Jeffers (Dutton 1982), Sheilah Beckett (Putnam, 1986; o.p.), Barbara Cooney (Hastings, 1991), and Cathy Beylon (Golden, 1992). Westerman's minutely detailed watercolors depict a Dutch landscape where three children, dressed in nightclothes, and a cat set sail in a wooden shoe. The luminosity of the moonlit sea is captured in muted shades of blue that create a soothing mood for the dramatic verse. Spacious design featuring full-page, neatly bordered pictures opposite the text enhances the quiet mood. The elaborate typeface is artistically in keeping with the 19th-century flavor of the poem.?Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY

I raised my 4 children with this book and now am introducing my grandchildren to it. Always the last read at night and we all knew it by heart. Pleasant dreams were inspired from this poem and what a peaceful way to fall asleep. I really appreciated the poem but the illustrator definately grasped the feel of the words.

I picked up this edition of "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" at the preschool arts lab where I work, and remembered that the poem has been set to music. Using the lovely pictures and singing the song, I kept a group of three year olds enthralled for fifteen minutes...without a sound. Such is the power of this dreamy little poem. Nets of silver and gold has this story, and Westerman's illustrations are stars in the twinkling foam.

This book has been a long time favorite of my daughter-in-law. Now that she and my son are soon expecting their first child she asked that I purchase the book... this is one of two books that will be part of their family tradition. It will be read by my son to his daughter at first on cassette tape where she will get to know her daddy's voice and then when he comes home and holds her for the first time. It is a great book! Great enough to send to Iraq in love of the miracle we are waiting for.

Format: Paperback
This beautiful classic nursery rhyme by Eugene Field has comforted children off to sleep for generations and has endured as a favorite for good reason. The lovely, peaceful verse sings to us of a river of crystal light, a sea of dew, twinkling foam, nets of silver and gold, a moon that laughs and a wind that ruffles the waves. The illustrations that Johanna Westerman has supplied are the perfect compliment to this treasured story and are executed in watercolors using mostly sea green, blue and torquoise to create a moonlit vision of dreamland as the three children, Wynken, Blynken and Nod, set sail with their cat in a charming boat shaped like a wooden shoe. This is a soothing and gentle bedtime story and I highly recommend it.

I was not introduced to this poem until I was 18. We were performing it in concert as a part of Midge of Gold which is a collection of children's tales set to music. I fell in love with it and when I found out it was an actual book, it became one of the first gifts I give to parents and children. The melody is one that stays with me and it's a great lulaby. This book is worth more than what you will pay for it. I have not met one person who read it as a child and didn't love it. The poem and illustrations are wonderful. Buying this book for your child, or any child, is a great investment.

This is a book that my father grew up on, and after having kids of his own, read it to us. As we grew up, this book had somehow disappered, and, having missed it so much, set upon looking for it on the internet. This is a beutiful children story, but not only for children... Don't miss it!

Beautifully illustrated! My granddaughter (age 3) asked a hundred questions while I was trying to read the poem. This means, to me, that she is trying to put the illustration with the poem. She thoroughly enjoyed it and kept saying "again" at the end. A very old poem still marches on!

I visited this great little town, called Wellsboro PA and they had a statue of Wynken, Blynken and Nod. I went in the local bookstore which is on main st. call From My Shelf Books and they had the poem. I thought this poem had gone out of print. I was glad to have found it.
