PreS-Gr 1—Brownie (girl) and Pearl (cat) are tired. Together they go through their routine of bath, snack, and story before it's time to hit the hay. The trek to Brownie's room ends with the two snuggled under her moon-covered, pink-and-purple quilt. The text is written in short sentences suitable for beginner readers and perfect for sharing with toddlers at bedtime. Biggs's digitally rendered illustrations are full of bright colors, clean lines, and great expressions, and have plenty of white space. Adults should be prepared to explain the phrase "hit the hay." Sure to be sought after by fans of the previous books.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH [Page 129]. (c) Copyright 2011.

Review by Publisher Summary 3

Brownie and Pearl are ready to hit the hay. First they have a snack and brush their teeth. Next they pull on pajamas. (Well, Brownie pulls on pajamas.) Then they both snuggle into bed for a story--a story starring a cat, of course--until it's time for lights out. Sleep tight, little ones!
