I have to declare an interest, since I am Deborah Underwood's brother in law. Which means I have had the privilege of knowing the book for many years in draft form (you have NO idea how long it takes for children's picture books to come out.)
The book has always been brilliant but I didn't imagine how great the pictures would be to go with it.
In short I think this is a great book and I don't think you or your children will be disappointed.
When the little moose was sitting on a bench holding his lunch box waiting for a ride home, he was very quiet. Swimming under the water is a special bubbly kind of quiet, but when the nurse is going to give you a shot it's definitely "pretending you're invisible quiet." Quiet times are when you suck on a lollipop when you're feeling under the weather, the shock of seeing your haircut in the mirror, keeping quiet when your little sister is sleeping, or trying not to make a peep when your yell "SURPRISE" at a birthday party. There are all kinds of special quiet times. Can you think of one?
This utterly charming book is one of those perfect bedtime books that will be cherished for years to come. It seemed like every little ssshhh moment was exquisitely and gently captured in both the text and the artwork. The artwork meshed perfectly with the "quiet" theme and the cast of adorable animals were captivating. My favorite scene was the little brown bunny and the iguana nestled together in bed in a darkened room . . . "What flashlight?" This is the type of book that childhood memories are made of. This lovely book is one that will definitely make its way into many hearts . . . and onto many wish lists!
