Like children everywhere, Miyuki’s imagination peaks at bedtime, when she remembers all the things she has to do before she can possibly go to bed: she needs to water the vegetables, gather snails, and prepare for the arrival of the Dragonfly Queen.
Her patient grandfather follows along on her adventures, gently encouraging her to go to sleep. In this beautiful story about family, nature, and love, young children and their parents find a welcome companion for their own bedtime journey.

“Grandfather,” she whispered. “We forgot to do something very important…”
“I know, Miyuki, I have not forgotten.
I will tell you a story.”
Grandfather opened a book and began to read…
Beautiful, magical. Just stunning. ❤️
There isn’t much else I can think of to say. The art is just so enthralling. Colourful and stunning. You’re transported into this magical place of wonder. Each page pulls you further into this world as Miyuki delays her bedtime with tasks that are essential prior to sleep. Tasks her grandfather helps her with.
