Good Night Tiger

illus. by Laura Hughes. 32p. Tiger Tales. Sept. 2016. pap. $16.99. ISBN 9781680100303.
PreS-Gr 1-When Emma keeps hearing growls, stomps, and trumpets in the middle of the night, she's convinced that the animals from the local zoo must have escaped. But no! It's the animals on her wallpaper, and they just can't get to sleep. She climbs into her wallpaper in hopes of settling down the animals with baths, lullabies, even hot chocolate, but nothing works until she pulls out a bedtime story. This supremely adorable bedtime tale fits perfectly into an already well-stocked genre. Hughes's illustrations are child-friendly and appear to be created with marker, colored pencil, crayon, and perhaps even some watercolor. They come across as polished where they need to but are imperfect enough that children could be inspired to make their own. This title is perfect for one-on-one snuggling or pajama storytime programs.
VERDICT A delightful purchase for bedtime story collections.-Shana Morales, Windsor Public Library, CT
