Firefly Books Ltd
Mrs. Ming, the baby-sitter, is repeatedly confronted by a wide-awake Jeremiah, who explains in imaginative terms his familiar dilemma of not being able to get to sleep. Mrs. Ming, who is interrupted reading the Financial News, practising her ballet steps, studying a poetry book, and hammering a nail into the wall, responds with patience and understanding at bedtime, setting the stage for Jeremiah to contentedly fall asleep.
"This demure, beguiling repetition book is beautiful and whimsical. Levert's playful pictures reflect both the composure of the characters and the sway of imaginative forces. A likely winner for the bedtime slot." -Toronto Star
A joyous, gentle celebration of a special friendship.
