Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
An array of friendly animals participates in a boy's ordinary activities in Cleminson's (Magic Box) day-in-the-life-of-a-toddler bedtime book, which opens as an elephant's trunk lifts the boy gently out of bed ("It's time to wake up... and start the day with friends!"). The book presents a charming fantasy world where children and animals coexist without any interference from human adults. The boy and an octopus practice violin, a large teacher bear reads a book to a group of children and animals, and the dining room walls feature family silhouettes of both animals and people when "it's time to eat up." Both tranquil and sweet, Cleminson's deceptively simple ink, pencil, and charcoal drawings show the boy with creatures who seem contented just being in his presence. There's a strong theme of self-sufficiency: the boy dresses himself (albeit with a bow-and-arrow and feathers as part of his ensemble), goes to school, plays, and enjoys a very polite dinner, until "it's time to clean up!/ Then pick and choose,/ search and look,/ and read aloud/ the perfect book," and go to bed. Ages 2–5. (Feb.)
Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Imaginary animals accompany a young boy as he wakes up, goes through his day, and goes back to bed. An elephant lifts him out of bed. Along with animal friends he cleans up and gets dressed. He brushes the teeth of a hippopotamus. He attends nursery school with other children and animals. He paints a picture along with a little girl and a dog. The teacher is a big bear. The boy runs, climbs, sings, dances, and plays hide and seek with a raccoon. He eats with a cat, raccoon, lion, and hippopotamus with accompanying noises. He reads the animals a bedtime story, and they all settle down to sleep. The elephant puts him in bed. The book concludes: "Rest up for another day with friends!" The illustrations are created with charcoal, inks, and colored pencil. Young children will enjoy the simple text and pictures. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
School Library Journal
PreS—A simple, rhyming text documents the daily activities of a boy and his animal friends. "Wake up" time begins when he is roused by an elephant, gets his hair brushed by a raccoon, brushes a hippo's teeth, and gets dressed with a cat. In "listen up," the boy attends school with a bear as his teacher and other children, as well as the animals, as classmates. "Swing up," or playtime, involves running, climbing, sliding, and dancing with a raccoon, and all the creatures come together to "eat up." The concluding text is perhaps most endearing: "Then pick and choose, search and look, and read aloud the perfect book. At last it's time to cuddle up!" After the boy reads the author's Magic Box (Hyperion/Disney, 2009) to his animal friends, he snuggles up in the elephant's trunk and they all fall asleep. Ink, colored pencil, and charcoal illustrations with thick black painted outlines against white or subdued colored backgrounds give the book an old-fashioned feel. While whimsical and imaginative, this import from Great Britain will have a difficult time standing out against all of the other bedtime books.—Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL
Kirkus Reviews
In this pleasant tale about a child's daily rituals, Cleminson encourages readers to find enjoyment in even the most mundane of routines. Assisted by animal pals, the young protagonist happily washes up, goes to school, eats, bathes and reads. Every activity offers contentment and most the chance to help and share as well. Playful illustrations done in colored pencil, ink and charcoal accompany the simple, rhyming text. The children are cartoon-like in design, while the animals are more realistic, and all of the illustrator's carefully composed images have a soft effect. Often, she uses little illustrated vignettes to match each line of text. Nothing is riotous or out of control, though there's much to amuse: The little boy is hoisted out of his bed by an elephant, its trunk latched onto his pajamas; later he sits in the hippo's mouth, diligently brushing its teeth. The rosy-cheeked boy is filled with a quiet joy, his day peaceful, his world agreeable. A gentle story, ideal for mollifying morning hygiene protests or calming school-day jitters. (Picture book. 2-5)

Meet the Author

Katie Cleminson is the author and illustrator of Magic Box, and a graduate of North Wales School of Art. About her inspiration for this book, she said, "When I was writing this story, I thought about who I would like to spend my dream day with. I decided I would love to be woken up by an elephant, hang out with a lemur, be taught violin by an octopus, and eat dinner with a hippo." Katie wakes up, eats up, and cuddles up in the UK.
