A lyrical lullaby tale that's perfect for bedtime.What can you do with a patch of black, a moon and a silver star? From a magical wish-granting cloak to a hammock rocked by jungle animal friends, there's nothing that a patch of night-time sky can't become with a bit of imagination, and certainly no need to be afraid of the dark. Rachel Rooney's charming text is accompanied by beautiful, evocative illustrations from Deborah Allwright.

Absolutely beautiful illustrations accompany this tale of imagination. With repeated kind words from her mom, the little girl is able to set aside her fears of the night, and can dream sweet dreams. The colour palette is well chosen, and enhances the imaginative experience.
