A hugely endearing picture book from the makers of the Big Bear and Little Bear series. When the sun goes down and the moon comes up, the toy monkey and his friends, Loopy the elephant and Little Gee the dog, creep softly out of the bedroom, down the stairs and through the dark hall on their way to the deserted park. The park's an exciting place to be after dark, though a little bit scary - especially when the Thing (a night train) hurtles out of the darkness, seeming to chase them. Then the three friends run all the way home and jump back into bed, safe and sound once more. Now a classic story, The Park in the Dark won the 1989 Kurt Maschler Award and has now been reissued to appeal to a new generation of young children.

I bought The Dark in the Park to read to children at a local grade school. The book is very large and beautifully illustrated and ideal for reading to small groups. It is of three child play animals adventure, who sneak away to visit a childrens park late at night. There are all sorts of imaginative images in the bushes and trees that a child might well imagine seeing himself. Then a LOUD FRIGHTENING NOISE comes from a very normal source and the animals flee to join the owner-child deep asleep at home.
The book was used but in beautiful condition, and delivered promptly.
Publishers Weekly, 1996-07-08 "The graceful mood of the text contrasts aptly with the playful postures of the toys," said PW about this tale of three stuffed animals from the author and illustrator of Can't You Sleep, Little Bear? (see p. 83). Ages 3-up. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Publishers Weekly, 1989-02-10 ``Me and Loopy and Little Gee,'' are the stuffed animals (a monkey, an elephant and a puppy) who make their way to the park each night after their young owner has gone to sleep. Out the window, through alleys, across light-swept streets they travel, and only Little Gee is afraid. And then, the ``Thing'' comes--a train passing the park--and the three scamper home before first light. The graceful mood of the text contrasts aptly with the playful postures of the toys, who take care of each other like three siblings--the bigger one carries the smaller, and they buck up each other's courage. Firth washes her pictures with soft blues and other dusty colors, rendering each dark corner safe. The abrupt ending feels forced, but that's easily forgiven. These three friends make the nighttime world a welcome place. Ages 3-6. (Mar.)
