An anthology of bedtime poetry takes young readers on a fun-filled nighttime adventure across bridges, aboard boats, aboard a night train, to the ocean to listen to whale songs and visit a great white shark, and back to bed to watch a thunder storm.

About Eileen Spinelli

See more books from this Author
Eileen Spinelli has won numerous awards for her writing, but she also knows what it feels like to have her work criticized. Telling the story of how she became a writer, Eileen says, "In second grade, my teacher, Miss Campbell, read my composition aloud as an example of the worst one handed in. I've been writing ever since." Miss Campbell was not on the panel of judges that gave Eileen the 1990 Magazine Merit Award for fiction from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, nor was she involved in the decision to give the 1991 Christopher Award to Eileen's warm and funny picture book Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch. Eileen also won the 1990 Highlights fiction contest and has had numerous stories and poems published in national magazines. She is the author of numerous books, including Song for the Whooping Crane, Sophie's Masterpiece, and, most recently, Here Comes the Year. Eileen, who enjoys traveling, her herb garden, old movies, flea markets, bookstores, tea parties, screened-in porches, and theater, continues to be hard at work on several book and poetry projects. She lives with her husband in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Cyd Moore is the illustrator of many picture books, among them the best-selling I Love You, Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt and its sequel, It's Time for School, Stinky Face. She lives in Beverly Hills, Michigan.
