Nye, Naomi Shihab Lullaby Raft
New York Simon & Schuster 1997 0689805217 / 9780689805219 First Edition Hardcover Good+ in Very Good dust jacket
Illustrated by Flesher, Vivienne
Spine slightly slanted, jacket flaps appear to have been glued to pastedowns and them torn loose, leaving damage to pastedowns and residue inside flaps. Name blacked out on front free end paper with stamped date at top of page. This may have been a library book, but if so those are the only markings. Jacket shows a little rubbing, slight edge wear, and a few pencil dents in back. Overall a quite attractive copy.
Lullaby Raft is patterned after the soothing songs the author's mother sang to her as a child. "One night, a child, a chicken, a bunny, a turtle and a lizard let a song carry them away. They climb into a lullaby raft that will lift them up, past quiet houses, through dark clouds, to a world of sleep and dreams where a child can see a future that shines."
