When Stella s toy animals refuse to go to sleep, she comes up with a clever plan using her keen imagination.
It s time for Stella to go to bed. But how can she sleep when Cherry Pig, Thunderbolt the puppet mouse, and Beanbag Frog are wide awake? "I m the world champion of staying awake " shouts Cherry Pig, bouncing on the bed. Luckily Stella is good at thinking up ways to get her toys to sleep - by taking them on a sailing Pillow Ship, a shoebox Midnight Train, and a toy-basket Starship Balloon. With luminous illustrations and an utterly charming text ("I ve shut my eyes, but my feet are completely woken-up . . . "), this ode to a child s imagination and boundless spirit is certain to be a winning choice at bedtime."
