Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Lulu and Ted are two stuffed animals that have no problem falling asleep at night. Harry is a stuffed elephant who assumes that like his friends, he will also fall right off to sleep. All of his usual nighttime preparations are made but to Harry's dismay, sleep does not come. He tries reading, cleaning, even jumping up and down, but still, sleep does not come. It is the kindness, support, and encouragement of Harry's two friends that eventually help him to forget his worries and drift into a deep and contented sleep. The story uses simple words and a rhythm pattern to capture and hold the attention of young children. The soft and warm illustrations in this endearing picture book help to convey a feeling of comfort and security. Anyone who has ever had difficulty falling asleep, and even those who have not, will certainly sympathize with Harry. This book can be enjoyed at anytime, not just bedtime. 2003, Candlewick Press, Ages 4 to 8.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Harry the elephant and his friends Lulu (a lamb) and Ted (a bear) are soft toys, very soft. The three get ready for bed and snuggle up together. Lulu and Ted nod out immediately but sleep doesn't come to Harry. He patiently goes through an impressive repertoire of bedtime rituals from reading a story to running in place to stretching. When he rolls in a ball and unintentionally takes all the blankets, Lulu and Ted wake up. They soothe the restless creature and assure him that "We're here, Harry." The three sit together companionably and quietly, watching the moon through the window. As the elephant dozes off at last, his friends wish him good night and sweet dreams, and curl up around him in bed. Lewis's meticulous illustrations were rendered in colored pencil and pastel, and the vivid, warm textures of the toys are sure to be appreciated by children. The expressive figures are plump and sweet looking, but never saccharine. This is a gentle book with illustrations that hum, and a bedtime story that's as warm as it is irresistible.-Liza Graybill, Worcester Public Library, MA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Lewis delivers a sweet, slightly melancholy tale of Harry the stuffed elephant, first introduced in My Friend Harry (1995). For Harry, this may be a long night because, although his friends, a lamb and a bear, snooze beside him, sleep eludes him. He realizes he has forgotten his bedtime story, so he peruses his books until his eyes grow heavy-but still no sleep. He fruitlessly tries running in place and cleaning his room. "Maybe I'm not really comfy," he muses as, back in bed, he tosses and turns. He thinks, he worries, and he rolls about, waking his companions. Together they take in the night, sing a song to the moon, and feel the night dew. With a final snuffle, Harry slumbers. Everyone who has a sleepless night now and then can relate to Henry's discomfort and feel warmed as these plush animals nestle under the woolen afghan. The velvety artwork has a dreamy quality, combined with familiar details that will hasten and cushion the fall into sleep. (Picture book. 2-7)

    A SWEET, SOOTHING BEDTIME STORY

    Talented author/illustrator Kim Lewis proffers a soothing, sweet bedtime story that may lull even the most wide awake youngsters to sleep. Harry, the loveable plush elephant, is the focus of the tale. He's getting ready for bed with his pals Lulu and Ted. But after they clamber into bed Lulu and Ted fall fast asleep while Harry just lies there wide awake. He tries to read himself a bedtime story but that has no effect. Harry tries everything imaginable from cleaning up his room to running in place - all to no avail. Lulu and Ted are steadfast friends, and they help Harry to find his way to dreamland. Soft moonlit illustrations done in colored pencil and pastel add to this bedtime tale. - Gail Cooke
