From Booklist:

Ages 4^-6. Because he's afraid of the dark, Little Panda relies on his Moonlight to shine over him throughout the night. But when he buys a tiny plant for his mother's birthday gift and hides it in the dark attic, he has to give up his Moonlight so the plant will survive. Adjusting to sleeping without his Moonlight, Little Panda is no longer scared of the dark. By his mother's birthday, to everyone's surprise, the tiny plant has grown so big that it has burst through the roof. The atmospheric watercolors evoke Little Panda's early, discordant feelings as well as the overall warmly reassuring mood of the story. Although the surprise ending is initially disconcerting, this comfortable sequel to Dad! I Can't Sleep will be enjoyed by all. April Judge
