Synopsis

The Princess and the Sleep Stealer by Elissa Elwick

Princess Luna is the Sleep Keeper of the little town of Papier. Every night, she leans out of her castle window and sprinkles sleepy dust down to the houses below, sending everyone gently to sleep until morning. But disaster strikes when the dust disappears! Where has it gone? And with time rapidly running out, will the princess get it back before bedtime?

About the Author

Elissa Elwick graduated from the Arts Institute at Bournemouth in 2008 with a pencil firmly fixed in her right-hand and she hasn't stopped drawing since. In addition to her illustration work, Elissa makes greeting cards and plush toys and also runs illustration workshops at schools. When not thinking up stories or inventing new characters, she's usually making a cup of tea, buying yet another book or gluing googly eyes onto inanimate objects. Elissa lives in London and THE PRINCESS AND THE SLEEP STEALER is her first picture book.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
