Buglette the Messy Sleeper
This sweet bedtime story features vibrant, enticing water color illustrations. A tale meant for the young (read: the under kindergarten set), older children may find Buglette the Messy Sleeper by Bethanie Deeney Murguia “babyish,” but its intended market will find it soothing and pleasant. Restless sleepers will recognize themselves in the lovable Buglette and cheer for her as she rescues her skeptical family. A few sinister moments pop up during the course of the tale but Murguia handles them adroitly so the scenes are neither too frightening nor too insipid.
