From the savanna to the city to outer space, celebrated Nordic children's book illustrator Linda Bondestam offers a charming peek at the many ways we settle in for sleep, with gorgeous, dreamlike illustrations full of offbeat humor.
Discover the bedtime routines of animals all over the world through the eyes of an alien family on a faraway planet. Little monkey needs his mama to play at least seventy-three songs on the ukulele to fall asleep. A meerkat family enjoys some stretches together as the sun goes down, while baby sloth is a bedtime expert--she's already snoozing soundly in the trees. Die-cut pages invite little ones to help new animal friends get cozy under the covers.
With unconventional illustrations full of wit and tenderness, Good Night, Earth is a sweetly silly exploration of how all kinds of creatures find peaceful and playful ways to end the day.
