Lavish full-spread watercolors... bristle with energy even as they suggest the restlessness youngsters may experience in the deep of night, wide awake and alone. Publisher's Weekly Pinkney's watercolors are lusciously tactile, the monumental, somnolent bear wedged into generous double spreads while his ever-alert friend springs from clover to stream and almost off the page on a marvelous final foldout spread. Delectable. Kirkus Reviews Graceful in both picture and word, this creates a mood that transcends the intricacies of the text. Booklist
