Eugene W. Field's timeless lullaby is lovingly rendered in charming, whimsical illustrations by award-winning illustrator David McPhail. WYNKEN, BLYNKEN, AND NOD takes children on a magical journey into the night sky where three fishermen sail in a wooden shoe, capturing the stars in nets of silver and gold and laughing with the moon. And when the nighttime adventure comes to an end, the wooden shoe brings the fishermen home to the real world of a child fast asleep. With soft illustrations and rhythmic rhyme, this lullaby poem will help energetic toddlers settle down and have sweet dreams as they snuggle into their beds.
The soothing, classic bedtime poem is beautifully refreshed with large paintings by David McPhail.
