Dad resists her pleas, and Rubys dreams take her to a jungle where she asks each wild creature she meets to finish reading the book. Instead, they offer, in turn, a ride on a lions back, a swing on a snake, a gorilla piggyback, a river-crossing on an alligator, and a flight over the treetops in the beak of a great bird. She slips from the birds grasp and lands with a thump on her bedroom floor. Her father races to her and, tucking her gently back in bed, offers to finish reading where he left off.

But little Ruby is sound asleep. Smees story pleasantly depicts some warm family moments--the treasured story time and a parents tender concern when a child falls. The jungle fantasy is a bland device that makes a weak connection between the excellent start and conclusion. Smees watercolor cartoons feature simple stylized people and animals. Her colors are subdued with a sprinkling of pattern to add interest, but the soft hues make this selection best for sharing one-on-one. --Virginia E.
