“Miyuki’s imagination reaches its climax at bedtime when she recalls all the things she must do before she can possibly go asleep, including water the vegetables, collect snails, and get ready for the Dragonfly Queen to arrive. While patiently accompanying her on her outings, her grandfather gradually nudges her toward bedtime. Young children and their parents discover a welcome companion for their own evening voyage in this lovely narrative about family, nature, and love.”
