Lester eagerly leaves the Children's home to go with his new adoptive parents Daddy Albert and Daddy Rich and pet Winka. He is happy in his new home except at bedtime, when the new quiet is unsettling. His parents are patient up to a point, but don't know how to solve the problem. Winka does. I appreciate that this book starts on the very first day of Lester's new life, that the illustrations seem fluid, there are no straight lines here, the colors are warm ao there is a coziness that permeates and let's us know that everything will work out just fine.
