>Claire has compiled a list of recommended bedtime stories perfect for these cooling nights.

    >I hasten to add that I was not snubbing At Night, but rather compiling the list using the Guide online, to which the book (being in the upcoming Spring Guide issue) has not yet been added.

    Jonathan Bean’s- At Night?

    You’re right-It’s just about perfect for bedtime or anytime.

    Any comments about Mem Fox’s Where the Giant Sleeps…….
