I am new to this series by Cynthia Rylant. The little guinea pig is a perfect choice for this book and many children may know one personally. The book "gives a nod" to The Velveteen Rabbit, and the Toy Story movie as the toys come alive at night, but the book far outdistances these with its realistically painted illustrations by Tim Bowers. I can smell the blocks and feel their carvings and textured surfaces, the smooth and hard surface of the marbles, and the soft, nubby texture of the stuffed animals' felted wool. I plan to enjoy the rest of the "Little Whistle" series, and I deeply hope that the rest of these books are also illustrated by Tim Bowers.
