Horn Book Review

At night, Daddy begins work as a train conductor in London while son Harry is at home in the country with Mummy, Gran, and Baby, enjoying the end of his day; spreads alternately show Daddy's and Harry's routines. This reassuring night-in-the-life is made even more so with cozy ink and watercolor art that captures the joyful reunion when Daddy's day ends and Harry's begins. (c) Copyright 2019.
