PreS-K-An unpretentious cumulative story in which text and illustrations are in perfect sync. It is evening and a little gray donkey can't get into his stable because it is already occupied. Pig explains that he is there because somebody else is in the pigsty (a dog). Dog complains that somebody else is in his basket (a hen), Hen squawks that somebody else is in the henhouse (a mouse), and Mouse gripes that he has been displaced by a beetle. When Beetle is accused of causing all the trouble, it is revealed that the donkey has stepped on its burrow. All is set right, and the animals are able to go "back where they belonged." Vivid acrylic artwork is appealingly textured and detailed. Some of the pages have sturdy, half-page flaps that open to show the creatures in the wrong beds. Clues are provided to help readers guess the animal prior to actually seeing it. Passage of time is depicted by the sinking sun and changing colors in the sky until the moon is high and everyone is asleep. An excellent choice to fill the demand for farm-animal and bedtime stories.-Olga R. Barnes, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, NC Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

This is just right for the transition from the activity of daytime to the peace and quiet of night.
