A young girl engages in a midnight romp with pillows from around the house.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-- When Polly finds that her pillow and some of the living room cushions come alive and become playful in the middle of the night, she frolics with them until a fight breaks out and disrupts their games. Unfortunately, the watercolor with pen and ink illustrations are disappointingly lifeless considering all the movement they're supposed to be capturing. The pillows seem static, even when flying in midair. Although they're dancing and sparring autonomously, they suggest neither personality nor character. Polly, herself, fails to register emotion or energy, leaving readers to look twice to figure out "Why do you think she looked so sad?" or "Ready, steady . . . WHOOSH!" Backgrounds washed gray-to-black for nighttime add to the overall lackluster presentation. A layout in which most pages are divided vertically into several blocks puts the brakes on what little momentum develops. Ormerod's fans will find a glimpse of her usual affectionate understanding here, but Midnight Pillow Fight lacks the charm that make older favorites, such as This Little Nose (Lothrop, 1987), work well. --Liza Bliss, Worcester Public Library, Salem Square, MA
