It’s the same every night: Simon doesn’t want to go to bed. And once he’s lying down he can’t close his eyes until his father climbs the stairs and begins their nightly ritual. The world must be put to sleep. Continent by continent, habitat by habitat, even the imaginary realm of elves, princesses, and fairies must succumb to Simon’s father’s dreamy incantations, before Simon can deliciously relax and let himself go. Dominique Demers’s poetic text and Nicolas Debon’s romantic images remind every parent and child of the pleasure that can be found in a sweet shared ritual that takes all the pain out of going to bed.
