Kate Prendergast's full-colour picture book is the perfect bedtime companion: from the domestic dog and cat, out through the farmyard and onto the prairie and the icecaps of the wider world, she introduces her readers to the sleeping habits of a wide range of creatures. Beautiful close-up images are followed by a spread which wonders whether they dream - and of what? Four pages of curious animal facts leave the young reader with plenty to think about as they fall asleep.

'Gorgeous illustrations attractively answer any curious child's question: where and how do different animals sleep?... Brief notes at the end provide exactly the right amount of information to add detail to the pictures.' - Julia Eccleshare. LoveReading4Kids

'I fell in love with the illustrations. What a lovely way to teach children about other animals... This would make a lovely gift for young children.' - Louise Nettleton, Book Murmuration blog

Suitable for ages 5+ Shortlisted for the Teach Primary Early Years Award 2019
