—Kirkus, starred review
"Touched with enchantment . . . This may put little ones to sleep, but they'll have a lot to look at before they close their eyes."
—Booklist, starred review
"Zagarenski's dreamy mixed-media illustrations are as calm and comforting as Logue's understated prose."
"Zagarenski's paintings take Logue's story to places marvelously distant in thought and time; each spread holds treasures to find even after several readings."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Logue’s text is reassuring and rhythmic, but it is the fine detail and plush atmospherics of Zagarenski’s layered multimedia illustrations that make the book shine.”
—New York Times Online
"The common theme of a child not ready for bed receives fresh treatment here. . . . [A] memorable picture book."
—School Library Journal, starred review

Sleep Like a Tiger is every bit deserving of the awards bestowed upon it. You and your kids will enjoy the slow drift into an autonomous dream world. The young protagonist of the book, much like your own child may be, claims not to be ready for a night's worth of slumber. Go ahead and brush your teeth, her parents instruct her, just to fulfill good measure.
Each page is a fully drawn fantasy that moves from the small hints of imagination, like the tiger rolling out with the sun or an otter sinking into the sheets, to the large fanciful world of dreamland and the jungle labyrinths of the sleeping tiger. Just the right amount of words are used with each page to keep your child's imagination flowing and the story moving along.
The first few pages may not seem out of the ordinary, but the conclusion ties everything together and creates a sleepy scenario not unlike those in classics such as Where the Wild Things Are. With confidence, I can recommend this book to any weary-worn parent wishing to read their kid to sleep.
I have a slightly different take on the characters than some of the other reviewers. I do not see this as a royal family and this child is not a princess, except perhaps in her own imagination. They live in a village in a house no more or less grand than those around it. The house is simple and cozy with few furnishings and no servants. There is a dog, a cat, and a warm fireplace, not unlike what many children grow up with. The little girl wears her crown to bed; if you look carefully little crowns and wheels appear throughout the book, a part of the artist's fanciful style. However, the beauty of a children's book is that it can be whatever you imagine so perhaps they are a king, queen and princess after all.
I have both the hardbound version and the Kindle version of this book. A few words about the Kindle version ... as is true of any picture book, the Kindle version cannot replace the full size book that you can hold in your hands. However, the Kindle version is wonderfully portable for waiting rooms and such, the artwork is still lovely to look at, and your hardbound copy can stay safely at home. The formatting of the book on the Kindle is a function of the Kindle app on your device. Complaints about app functionality need to be addressed to the app developers as they are the only ones who can fix them. If you think you might be bothered by the smaller size of the pages on your tablet, the Kindle version may not be for you, but this fabulous book deserves 5 stars.
