"Mothers and fathers, teachers and jugglers -- everyone's aboard the night train. They're all sleepyheads, ready for bed, ready to ride the train to tomorrow. But the train won't go until wide-awake William shuts his eyes, too..."--Jacket.

McMillan Palgrave
All aboard!

Tonight everyone's riding the night train -- mothers and fathers, teachers and jugglers -- they're all sleepyheads, ready for bed, ready to ride the train to Tomorrow. Everyone, that is, except wide-awake William, who is too excited to sleep. William can't resist exploring the train from end to end, discovering its secrets, until his mother convinces him that the train won't go and Tomorrow won't come until he settles down and shuts his eyes . . .

With dreamy illustrations and a text filled with a rocking bedtime rhythm, this appealing picture book captures the anticipation felt by any child who is setting out on an exciting new journey.

Quite surreal; my toddler enjoyed it just because it has a train in it; I enjoyed the unusual approach - more than just a description of the various cars.
