Very Little Sleeping Beauty by Teresa Heapy

Very Little Sleeping Beauty is little. Very little. Tomorrow she is having a birthday party, but now it's bedtime and she's not very tired...Join her on a very big bedtime adventure from the award-winning Heapy and Heap! A perfect present . (The Times on Very Little Red Riding Hood).


This is another enchanting addition to the Heapy/Heap Very Little series and the maps on the inside front and back covers suggest more to come: I hope so. Reading these books aloud is a delight and I can't wait for my first opportunity to grab some suitably small children and share this one with them. -- Jill Bennett * Jill R Bennett Wordpress ( * With lovable and distinctive characters, it has a very easy-reading and gentle style of writing and is a feel-good tale
