""This classic bedtime poem appears in a newly illustrated edition. . . . Westerman's minutely detailed watercolors depict a Dutch landscape where three children, dressed in nightclothes, and a cat set sail in a wooden shoe. The luminosity of the moonlit sea is captured in muted shades of blue that create a soothing mood for the dramatic verse.""--""School Library Journal."
In this bedtime poem, three fishermen in a wooden shoe catch stars in their nets of silver and gold.
