Wynken, Blynken, & Nod - Eugene Field When I was a zookeeper several years ago, I worked with three Brazilian golden-rumped agoutis* named Winky, Blinky, and Nod. Someone mentioned that the names had come from a story; I never followed up on it, but today I ran across this book and was delighted to have that little piece of my past pop up. The illustrations in this book are lovely, giving just the right sense of eerie nighttime magic. I greatly enjoyed this short picture book.

*An agouti is a type of rodent found in Central and South America, somewhat resembling a cross between a guinea pig and a small deer, with longer legs and delicate hands.
