Everyone agrees that Cutie LaRue is a perfect child . . . except at bedtime. She just isn't tired. Cutie's parents try absolutely everything to get her to bed--with disastrous results. But finally they discover Night Owl, a wondrous toy that takes Cutie on a fantastic journey to Dreamland.
The award-winning author and illustrator team of Andrea Davis Pinkney and Brian Pinkney have created a world of magic and music, perfect for children who just can't seem to fall asleep--and for the sleepless parents who help them through the ordeal. With Cutie LaRue and Night Owl for company, bedtime will never be the same.
