JUVENILE FICTION / Bedtime & Dreams
Caldecott Honor winner Rachel Isadora’s stunning oil paintings bring to life this delightful tale of goodnight bedtime rituals, now available in board book!



The sun has set, the moon is rising, so it must be bedtime. But not if Lala has a say—because she’s not ready to go to sleep. First she needs to say good night to the cat. And the goat. And the chickens. And, and, and…Lala’s stalling tactics will ring true for all parents whose little ones aren’t ready to say goodbye to the day—and all will appreciate the wonderful culmination to the bedtime ritual.



Story Locale: African plains

PERFECTLY SUITED FOR BOARD BOOK: The sweet, simple repetition of Lala’s good-nights to each animal make it easy for young listeners to follow along.

AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR-ILLUSTRATOR: Rachel received a Caldecott Honor for Ben’s Trumpet.



HARDCOVER WAS A DOLLYWOOD SELECTION (893,815 copies)

FUNNY, RELATABLE STORY WITH A UNIVERSAL TOPIC: Lala’s dragged-out bedtime routine will bring laughs of recognition from kids and parents alike.

CHARMING MAIN CHARACTER: Lala might not be a good listener, but she and her good-night moments with the animals are truly adorable.

VERSATILE ILLUSTRATOR: Rachel’s collage and watercolor artwork has wowed reviewers, and now the African veld comes to life in her equally stunning oil paintings.

LOVELY SHOUT-OUT TO A CLASSIC PICTURE BOOK: Lala’s favorite book, shown in her bedroom at the end of the story, is naturally Goodnight Moon.

Rachel Isadora received a Caldecott Honor for Ben’s Trumpet, and has written and illustrated numerous other books for children, including several classic tales set in Africa (such as Old Mikamba Had a Farm and The Princess and the Pea), Do I Have to Wear a Coat?, My Dog LaughsI Hear a PickleBea in the NutcrackerBea at BalletJake at GymnasticsSay Hello!Peekaboo Morning, and the Lili at Ballet series. She lives in New York City.

Author Residence: New York, New York

“This gentle title is wholly original and a homage to the classic bedtime story…. Universalities, such as a loving family coaxing an adorably stalling child to bed, are also depicted. A charming, soothing bedtime tale that begs to be shared again and again.”School Library Journal

“Isadora revisits the rural African setting of some of her fairy tale retellings in a story spotlighting the age-old phenomenon of bedtime stalling…. The repetition gives the story a predictable, lilting cadence that invites children to echo Lala’s good night wishes…. Dramatic oil-and-ink artwork offers tender portraits of Lala gently interacting with each animal against a darkening landscape as the sun descends, the moon rises, and shadows emerge.”Publishers Weekly

“The African setting is harmoniously rendered in oils and ink, and, as night falls, the scenes become even richer. Lila, her hair in twisty braids, dressed in a simple shift, is a sweet yet spunky heroine who captures the universal defiance of children at bedtime.”Booklist

“There are some behaviors that span the globe…. Preschool-perfect conflict, and the text could not be simpler, giving to Isadora’s illustrations, oil paint and ink, all the drama of sunset on the African plains. The ever-deepening blue of the sky is the backdrop to a rich display of plants and animals, all naturally but boldly hued and anchored by the human forms of Lala and her family and their fellow villagers. A twist at the end…is a good gentle joke in its own right but also serves to reinforce the universality of the situation.”The Horn Book
