Dunbar continues her spot-on tales of preschool life with two more books about Tilly and her housemates. In Bites, alligator Doodle wakes "feeling bitey" and creates havoc throughout the household. In Tiptoe, Tilly helps everyone prepare for bed, but it's rambunctious rabbit Tiptoe who tucks Tilly in. Dunbar varies the background color of her uncluttered illustrations to complement each story's mood.
