This is the sweetest of stories. You can see how events unfold as the night wears on. I adore Oxenbury's illustrations. They capture the innocence and desires of this little boy so perfectly. I just looked up the author, Amy Hest, she's written quite a few books- all new to me. I'll be on the lookout for them.
I've been a big fan of Helen Oxenbury's work for a very long time, this month we'll be showcasing several of her books. In fact we've already shown We're Going on a Bear Hunt and The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig.
I must be off celebrating Human Rights Day now! (Meaning I'll be cleaning the house, doing laundry, and picking up after my kids who are all home today.)
Enjoy & Happy Reading
