Summary
"Baby sail the seven seas
Safely in my arms
When the waves go up and down
You are safe from harm."
From Margaret Wise Brown, author of the beloved Goodnight Moon , comes a previously unpublished collection of charming lullabies, gorgeously illustrated by 12 award-winning artists. The roster of celebrated names includes Carin Berger, whose The Little Yellow Leaf was a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book; Eric Puybaret, who brought the bestselling Puff, the Magic Dragon to life on the page; Coretta Scott King Honor Award winner Sean Qualls; and Caldecott Honor medalist Melissa Sweet. An accompanying CD, with lilting songs beautifully composed and sung by Emily Gary and Tom Proutt, makes this the perfect gift to wish children a sweet goodnight. nbsp; The illustrators are: Jonathan Bean * Carin Berger * Sophie Blackall * Linda Bleck * Renata Liwska * Christopher Silas Nealnbsp; * Zachariah OHora * Eric Puybaret * Sean Qualls *nbsp; Isabel Roxas * Melissa Sweet * Dan Yaccarinonbsp;
Contents
The noon balloon
Mambian melody
Goat on the mountain
Sleep like a rabbit
When the Man in the Moon was a little boy
Song to Estyn
The secret song
Wooden town
Little donkey close your eyes
When I close my eyes at night
Sounds in the night
The mouse's prayer.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When Amy Gary, the editor of the Margaret Wise Brown estate was rummaging through Brown's sister's barn attic 20 years ago, she found the treasure of a lifetime: unpublished manuscripts, poem fragments, and song lyrics left by Brown, who died unexpectedly after a routine appendectomy. Some of that treasure trove appears here for the first time in print. Although a CD (unheard by this reviewer) accompanies the book, these tiny offerings can also be read as poetry. Each spread places the text against an illustration by a different, distinguished artist, including Carin Berger, Sophie Blackall, Sean Qualls, and Melissa Sweet. The pieces, for the most part, are quite simple and employ repetition that will appeal to little ones, although it can be overused, as in Wooden Town. In other selections, such as The Secret Song, there is more to consider: Who saw the petals / Drop from the rose? / I,' said the spider. / But nobody knows.' The charming artwork pushes this up several notches, and Brown's many adult fans will be happy to share this.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Twelve talented illustrators interpret gentle poems by the late Brown, all but three of which have never before been published. In an introduction, Amy Gary, editor of Brown's estate, describes finding hundreds of the writer's unpublished manuscripts 20 years ago, a "treasure of a lifetime" that contained (among many other works) the verse in this volume. In keeping with the "goodnight" theme, the poems tend to have the muted and contemplative tone of a lullaby, even when the subject isn't sleep. For "Song to Estyn," Eric Puybaret provides a gauzy image of a child in a sailor's outfit held snugly by his father on the deck of an ocean liner ("Baby, sail the seven seas/ Safely in my arms"); Linda Bleck strikes a more comedic note in her midcentury retro illustrations of wide-eyed forest creatures for "Goat on the Mountain." Animals figure into many of the poems, and Renata Liwska, Melissa Sweet, Zachariah OHora, and other contributors create strong connections to the text in their artwork. Musicians Tom Proutt and Emily Gary turn each poem into a song on an accompanying CD. A rewarding and visually wide-ranging collection. Ages 3-6. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
