School Library Journal - 08/01/2013 PreS-K—In this follow-up to Cheer Up, Mouse! (Houghton Harcourt, 2013), Mouse's forest friends take turns trying to lull him to sleep under a moonlit sky, each sure of the success of the technique chosen-a snack, a comfortable bed, dim light-and many of them will be familiar to listeners. Henry's gentle, mixed-media illustrations bring out the humor of the situation when good intentions meet mismatched expectations. Birds can easily sleep on a narrow tree branch, but Mouse's balance isn't as steady. Repetition and rhythm make this an easy read-aloud, and musically inclined adults will have an opportunity to sing the last lines of the text: "Rest your head, little Mouse—/stars above you,/friends who love you/stay beside you while you dream.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
