Ferdinand Fox's Big Sleep by Karen Inglis
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Beautifully illustrated, this is the first of six delightful rhyming stories for 3-6 year-olds about Ferdinand, a kindhearted urban fox. Young children will love the rhyming text, the passing of time with the church clock, and the vibrant colours.

Synopsis

Ferdinand Fox's Big Sleep by Karen Inglis

"Ferdinand Fox curled up in the sun as the church of St Mary struck quarter past one. His tummy was full, he was ready for sleep, and closing his eyes he began to count sheep..."

Ferdinand sleeps his way through this first endearing story where, through his dream bubbles, he shares with us all of his favourite food. And when Peter Maceever spots him sleeping in his garden and tiptoes out to take a photo, Ferdinand hardly stirs! He has far more important things to do - like dream about cake and ice cream! By the end of the story Ferdinand has left the garden – but we somehow know that we have just met a very special fox…

About the Author

Karen Inglis

Karen Inglis lives in Barnes, southwest London. She’s been writing ever since she was little and still has a box of her daily diaries hidden in a cupboard somewhere. She also had many pen friends in far-flung places as a child. Of course that was back in the day of handwriting and posting letters – so it often took months to get a reply!

As well as writing for children Karen writes for business, but she far prefers making up stories. Her time travel adventure, The Secret Lake, sat in a box in her office for over 10 years – she’s very glad she got it out as it’s now been enjoyed by over 7,000 readers! Karen has two grown-up boys, George and Nick, and it was reading to them that inspired her to start writing for children.
