Debi Gliori lives in Haddington, East Lothian, Scotland. She is the creator of many wonderful books for children including the Mr Bear series with Orchard Books and our own bestseller No Matter What.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K—When night falls, parents ease their children's worries as the youngsters prepare for bed. From the strong polar bear to the tiny snail, the animal mothers and fathers are universal in their affection. The story's lulling pace enhances the quiet bedtime read-aloud. A mother rabbit assures her bunny, "If thunder tore the night in two/and lightning played at peekaBOO,/we'd watch the storm pass overhead,/then curl up safe and snug in bed." The clear message maintains its reassuring focus through peaceful phrases. Gliori's familiar characters assist the straightforward narrative through expressive faces, completing a unified package. Watercolor-and-ink spreads utilize warm earth tones within the family homes to contrast the sometimes threatening outside elements or cool night backdrops. Nimble lines support the comforting images, and swirling designs and twinkling stars add unique details. Cozy and inviting, this gentle read will soothe young listeners.—Meg Smith, Cumberland County Public Library, Fayetteville, NC
