"What was your favorite thing today?" asks Mommy as she tucks Matthew into bed. His answer gets more and more outrageous: Maybe it was the singing elephants who woke him up that morning, or the supersonic car race to school, or meeting a tyrannosaurus squirrel who lives in a tree castle. But in the end none of those wildly imagined happenings was his favorite. What was? A good-night hug and kiss from Mommy, of course!

Inspired by her own bedtime ritual with her son, Kimberly Brubaker Bradley shapes a heartwarming and very funny story of the inner life of children, made all the more appealing through Laura Huliska-Beith's gloriously bold, inventive artwork.

Huliska-Beith's (The Looking Book) makes the most of the boy's tale-spins, from an elephant driving a race car garbage truck to a "giant tyrannosaurus squirrel" at school with gnashing teeth and a spike collar.
