Nori is a sweet black-and-white kitten who can't go to sleep. He tosses and turns and then wanders out to the meadow to see his friends. Several creatures each give him something to help with his problem: a bag of "sweet dry grass from the meadow" for a pillow, a "dream feather," a toy elephant. Finally, Nori returns to bed, ready to fall asleep after a bedtime story from the moon and stars shining through his window. The text is short and repetitive, allowing children to predict what will come next. The animals are cuddly, with even the pig contentedly wallowing in mud. The midnight-blue sky is dotted with yellow stars. This story might help comfort young children who are struggling to sleep, but it's an additional purchase.
