Wynken, Blynken, and Nod take children on a magical journey into the night sky--where the three fishermen sail in a wooden shoe, capturing stars in nets of silver and gold and laughing along with the moon.
This classic bedtime poem is illustrated with adorable bunnies by David McPhail.
Praise for the hardcover edition:
McPhail smoothly varies the perspective and composition from scene to scene, so like the lullaby itself, the pictures suggest rhythm, grace, and mystery. A natural for reading aloud, and even better for singing aloud, this book may become a bedtime favorite. --Booklist
