A lilting lullaby in which we see everyone at the end of the day, tired and ready for bed - the cat and her kittens, a family of bears, a fish, a goose, a frog, even the man in the moon.
Each one weary, each one whispering 'Husherbye'. In the second half of the book we see each character curled up or snuggled down and tucked up and comfortable, each in an appropriate place, fast asleep and the reader reminds the listener that the time has come for sleep and invites them to rest their head on the pillow: Tomorrow's a new day.
You will go to sleep now. HUSHER BYE HUSHERBYE HUSH.
