Looking for Sleep

Tiger Tales. Mar. 2023. 24p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781664350588.
PreS-Gr 1–In scenes that are the deep blues and purple of nighttime, “It was bedtime in the forest, but Wolf was wide awake. He just couldn’t sleep!” Most readers, even preschoolers, will relate. Amid the beautiful scenery the illustrator has created, awash in moonlight to alleviate the dark, what is Wolf to do? He searches for sleep, shouts for it, and others join him. This is a darling tale of how tricky looking for sleep is, and it takes an owl to set them all straight. The digital art is toylike; every scene looks like a theatrical stage.
VERDICT A bedtime book that gets very loud before it gets quiet, but children will love to see the animals finally find sleep.
