"These graceful and gently powerful poems, in a few stunning words, capture tiny moments in all of their incipient enormousness. They grab the yellow in goldenrod, cherish love, recognize aging, bow to loss and, with amazing calm, never lose sight of beauty. They keep death in mind, so as to 'always see beyond it to life'." —Minneapolis Star Tribune

Sleep Like a Tiger, Winner of the Caldecott and Zolotow Awards.

In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny–like cadence: "Does everything in the world go to sleep?" In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides "in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets," she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenski's rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details.
