A rabbit who is not ready to go to sleep traps The Dark in a cookie tin…Similarly resistant young children will be lulled by a subtly soothing tone that even the outsized pop-up doesn’t disturb.
When it gets dark, little ones have to go to sleep. That’s the normal arrangement, anyway, vexing as it may be to some. But what if it can’t get dark? Hah, what then?
