About the book

It’s time for bed, and Alfie can’t find his most important toy. Where could it be? There are plenty of places to look . . . and that makes focusing on getting ready to sleep very difficult. Whimsically illustrated in watercolor and collage, this delightful story celebrates the chaos of a typical evening routine with a preschooler—equal parts exasperating and endearing. Spare, simple text and silly humor make this a perfect bedtime choice for the very young.
