Lewin, Betsy Good Night, Knight Holiday House, 2015. $14.95 PICTURE BOOK
An armored Knight and horse, fall asleep. When the Knight dreams
of golden cookies, they go off in search. After a sleepy search they find them
at home, eat them, and they fall asleep. Then the Horse dreams of golden apples,
and the reader is left to assume they go on that search as well.
This was not a great read for me. I can only assume the two
characters were in a state where marijuana is now legal, as their adventure is reminiscent
of Cheech and Chong with the munchies. Sleep and Cravings for food, not much
else. This was flat out boring and honestly a bit strange, on all levels. The
art was dated, dull, and unappealing. I prefer Night Knight by Owen Davey.
