Publisher Review

‘Beautifully and poetically captures everything that goes on as a small child sleeps… its diverse richness opens up a wonderful, wakeful world to ponder while drifting to sleep.’ * Just Imagine * ‘To open this book is like opening a gorgeous box full of jewels – each page is stunning – so too are the endpapers, the cover: the entire production in fact and to read it is like being shown around a gallery by a wise, gently spoken curator eager to open our eyes to how the world works.’ * Red Reading Hub * ‘Mesmerising illustrations fill this gorgeous book perfect for sharing at bedtime, or anytime. So much to talk about in these pages, which together make a work of art, perfect as a special gift.’ * It’s All About Stories * ‘This book is a true gem … This exquisitely illustrated book will jumpstart imaginations as it opens up a whole new world for kids!’ * A Family That Reads * ‘This charming, soothing book, full of timeless illustrations, opens up a whole world of wonder and imagination.’ * Creative Steps * ‘A wonderfully illustrated book which shows children what might go on while they’re sleeping.’ * Teacher Bookworm * ‘Exquisitely illustrated and blessed with enchanting prose.’ * Waterstones * ‘A feast for the eyes … an entrancing book’ * My Shelves Are Full blog *
