I was given a copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review.

This little book tells about the Night Gnomes, and how they come in at night to take clothes and toys that Ryan, and presumably other children, does not put away before bed.
It is a rhyming book, and at times stretched just a tad to get there, but nonetheless, it is delightful. It is not a rework of Dr. Seuss, rather it is in Mr. Klein's own voice.

The illustrations are simply magical. They are bright, fun, and perfect. This is a book to be read to a child, and when that child is old enough, to be read by her. I hope there are more books about Ryan, and his family.

Highly recommend this book if you have small children, or perhaps work with them in a school, library, or hospital.
