It’s time for bed, but Mouse is wide awake. If a forest full of friends who curl and cuddle, drift and snuggle, can’t lull poor Mouse to sleep, what will help Mouse say good night? This endearing story of friendship, with irresistible artwork by the New York Times best-selling illustrator Jed Henry, is the charming companion to Cheer Up, Mouse!.

About the Author

His favorite critters are his two little girls, who are about as wild as they come.      Jed Henry has published with many publishers including Harper Collins, Simon and Schuster, and Penguin. He illustrated the NYT Bestselling Can't Wait Till Christmas, written by Mike Huckabee, published in October 2010. In February 2011, he published Pick a Pup by Marsha Wilson Chall with Margaret K. McElderry Books. Jed lives by the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, in Provo, Utah. This is his first book with Houghton Mifflin.
