About the Author
Kenneth Kraegel is the author-illustrator of the picture books Green Pants and King Arthur's Very Great Grandson, which was named a New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year, as well as the board book This Is a Book of Shapes and the first chapter book Wild Honey from the Moon. He lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with his family.
Short sentences, lilting rhymes, and harmonious visuals help viewers grasp the subject matter. . . Kraegel invites readers in by showing a homey mushroom dwelling. . . A mycological charmer.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Mushrooms provide an unconventional and earthy through line for this cozy bedtime book. . . . Intricate dots and lines define Kraegel's ink and watercolor art, which quaintly supports this enchanted, inviting portrait of a mushroom day and night.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The simple, sweet rhymes anchor the gentle story and make it an ideal bedtime read-aloud, and the vibrant ink-and-watercolor illustrations are immersive and intimate. . . Children will pore over the cozy details, from bug-sized volleyball nets to miniature lantern-lit paths, and the last glimpses of a moonlit mushroom village may even have grown-ups wishing for a relocation to the snug setting. A magical, mellow mushroom dream.
--Booklist (starred review)

This book begins like a lyrical show-and-tell. . . With the turn of each golden page, the natural world of a realistic mushroom tale turns into a miniature journey to a small mushroom home. . . A nice way to send children off to post-story hour naps.
