Not since Goodnight Moon have the rhythms of bedtime been so well played as in this enchanting picture book. Instead of counting sheep, an insomniac little bear sends himself to sleep by contemplating the nighttime world from the bedroom window, remembering the day's adventures and planning for tomorrow's. At the back of the book, waiting to be discovered, is a special magic letter that has materialized out of the story, for each reader to color and place under his or her pillow to ensure "a beautiful dream and a good night."
