The Wee Hours

Stephanie Watson

A young child sleeps as mischievous little imps arrive to play. The Wee Hours, each numbered, come into the room as the clock strikes the hour. The first builds a shoe tower and bangs his belly like a drum. The second dances and sets the birds free. The third releases horses so they can jump and the fourth leads all the creatures in a parade. When Five arrives he calms them with stories and back rubs. Six and Seven help him clean up so the sleeping child is unaware of the magical adventures that occurred in her room. GrandPre's luminous pastel illustrations show the rambunctious elves at their best. A delightful bedtime story with amusing and whimsical creatures. Ages 4-6
