Like children everywhere, Miyuki's imagination peaks at bedtime, when she remembers all the things she has to do before she can possibly go to bed: she needs to water the vegetables, gather snails, and prepare for the arrival of the Dragonfly Queen. Her patient grandfather follows along on her adventures, gently encouraging her to go to sleep. In this beautiful story about family, nature, and love, young children and their parents find a welcome companion for their own bedtime journey.

The colors are rich, warm tones. And the miniature scale of Miyuki and her grandfather are magical, bathing in a bowl, pencils as stilts. The wonderment creates a perfect setting for bedtime, preparing the child not only for bed (finishing chores and washing up), but for dreaming.
