Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS—A young mouse gets ready for bed, but can't fall asleep. On subsequent pages, she begs her mother for, among other things, a drink, another blanket, a doll, and, finally, one more hug. Her exhausted mother obediently answers all these requests, and then falls asleep. Church's cartoons in collage, paint, and ink in muted earth tones on textured papers are appropriately cozy and snug. However, while children will identify with Madison's multiple bedtime requests and difficulties falling asleep, the resolution here is unsatisfying. Parents may find the ending funny and ironic, but children will not. The last page leaves Madison still anxiously wide awake, and the comforting ending necessary in bedtime books for young children is lost in the night.—Rachel G. Payne, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Church's latest is a reassuring nighttime book with a twist that parents can appreciate. Madison Mouse gets ready for bed with no argument, but once the routine of books and hugs is done and Mommy has left the room, she finds she needs "just one last thing." Three trips later, Madison has Molly Mouse for company, a drink and an extra blanket, her wooly hat to block out noises and for each trip, another hug from Mom. The fourth time, Madison asks for one last hug. An exhausted Mommy gives it to her, but falls asleep before Madison can complete her request for "just one more thing." Church's collage, brush and ink illustrations are just plain adorable and ideally suited to the youngest listeners. The three media blend well, and bold outlines and simple patterns and backgrounds eliminate extraneous detail, while the facial expressions on the mice speak volumes. Bedtime procrastinators and their exhausted parents are sure to sit through just one more reading. (Picture book. 3-6)
