About the Author

Rebecca Bond is the author-illustrator of many books, including Out of the Woods: A True Story of an Unforgettable Event and Escape from Baxter's Barn, a Junior Library Guild Selection and Amazon Editor's Favorite Pick. She grew up in the tiny village of Peacham in northeastern Vermont. Salley Mavor rediscovered her childhood delight in sewing and creating miniature scenes while studying at RISD. "I found I could communicate ideas more clearly than with pencil or brush, that my hands would direct me in a compelling way." Her innovative bas-relief sculptures appear in the award-winning Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes, as well as other picture books. She lives on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.

Reviews

"Children around the globe go to sleep in different kinds of beds in this ingeniously illustrated picture book.... All readers will want to return to pore over the details of these imaginative depictions.... A concluding note about the creation of the illustrations will be fascinating to adults and may prompt them to work with children to make some fabric collages. Read this before bedtime to ensure a world of sweet dreams." --Kirkus, STARRED review

"This eye-catching volume looks at bedtime....While the text is helpful, it's secondary to the photos that showcase Mavor's wonderfully detailed, diorama-like scenes, created with fabrics, beads, wood, and wire and richly, meticulously embellished with embroidery in thread and yarn. Featuring vibrant, harmonious colors, interesting patterns, and folk art charm, the illustrations will impress craft-minded viewers with the artist's ingenuity and attention to detail. A handsome book to share with young children."--Booklist "Mavor's immersive signature illustrations charm; the intricately stitched art, handcrafted from fabric, beads, wire, and yarn on embroidered fabric backgrounds, will assuredly catch readers' attention....this meditation on global similarities and differences is worth poring over for the fabric relief art alone." --Publishers Weekly
