★ "Blair serves us a gentler take on Where the Wild Things Are. . . . The artwork in this imaginative bedtime tale will captivate little ones with its peculiar, dreamlike details. It also sidesteps being scary, offering comfort in the wonders that the night can bring."--Booklist, Starred Review

"Blair offers viewers a fantastical nighttime adventure. . . . the crosshatched illustrations of imaginative creature-filled escapades recall classic Sendak. Equal parts magical and soothing, the story could serve as a wonder- filled read-aloud or a calming bedtime tale."--The Horn Book

"[An] enchanting bedtime tale."--Foreword Reviews

"A gentle and whimsical adventure, with a cool color palette of blues, purples, and greens to set a tranquil mood underneath a starry night sky. . . . This is a comforting read that encourages young readers to use their imagination to explore lands beyond their wildest dreams while overcoming their darkest fears."--The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books

"Dream-inspiring bedtime fare that emphasizes a child's solo arc toward self-soothing and, eventually, sleep."--Publishers Weekly

"Bedtime shenanigans take on a comforting tone in this tale of epic adventuring under the sheets. . . . Dynamic pen-and-ink crosshatchings against a palette of deep navy blues and dusk-colored purples suffuse Watson's story with an appropriately mellow bedtime feel. . . . Tone is Blair's strength, and kids will enjoy following Watson's twisty paths with their fingers."--Kirkus Reviews
