Description


A 2013 Caldecott Honor Book

In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny – like cadence: “Does everything in the world go to sleep?” the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides “in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,” she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenski’s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.

Praise For…


"This deeply satisfying story offers what all children crave when letting go--security and a trusted companion."
Kirkus, starred review

"Touched with enchantment . . . This may put little ones to sleep, but they'll have a lot to look at before they close their eyes."
Booklist, starred review

"Zagarenski's dreamy mixed-media illustrations are as calm and comforting as Logue's understated prose."
Horn Book

"Zagarenski's paintings take Logue's story to places marvelously distant in thought and time; each spread holds treasures to find even after several readings."
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Logue’s text is reassuring and rhythmic, but it is the fine detail and plush atmospherics of Zagarenski’s layered multimedia illustrations that make the book shine.”
New York Times Online

"The common theme of a child not ready for bed receives fresh treatment here. . . . [A] memorable picture book."
School Library Journal, starred review

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
