Go to Bed, Ollie by Mary-Helen Barrett

I always love any fox-related children’s books, and these illustrations are especially cute, with the fox’s pointy little teeth. 

I enjoyed reading this book; the sensory imagery is especially good for a children’s book. The writing and formatting isn’t perfect, but I can forgive that in light of the illustrations and story. 

My only concern with this book is that, as someone who struggles with insomnia and nightmares, it seems unfair to promise children that if they go to bed then they will have beautiful, peaceful dreams. It seems kind of a disingenuous way to get children to go to sleep. 

I give this book four stars. I received an advance copy of this book for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
