Ferdinand Fox's Big Sleep Colouring Book by Karen Inglis


Ferdinand Fox's Big Sleep Colouring Book 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. A delightful rhyming children's book and colouring book about Ferdinand, a kindhearted urban fox. Ferdinand falls asleep in Peter Maceever's back garden one afternoon. As he sleeps, we learn through his illustrated dream bubbles about all of his favourite food - such as sausages, chocolate, cakes and ice cream! Perfect for parents to read aloud to children aged 2-5 years who will love the rhyming story and bold black and white line drawings - or for children age 6+ to read alone. Also a great children's activity book - they will love colouring in the beautiful illustrations. There is also a full colour picture book edition of Ferdinand Fox's Big Sleep - why not get both so that your child can copy the colours?!

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.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
