Newbery medalist Patricia MacLachlan and Caldecott Honor and Newbery Honor winner Tomie dePaola have joined forces to create a stunning and lyrical new bedtime picture book that's sure to become an instant classic.

The moon's almost here.
Robin sings in her nest.
Babies fly back to her,
ready to rest.


The moon's almost here.
There's no time to play.
Mama sheep hurries;
Sun's going away.


Nighttime is approaching as each animal readies itself for bed in this lyrical picture book text by Patricia MacLachlan. In striking paintings with a calming palette, Tomie dePaola imagines the scene through the eyes of mime Pierrot and his child.
