Synopsis

Sleepy Places by Judy Hindley

Do you suppose you could sleep in a rose like a bee, or snooze in the ooze like a frog? When you're yawning and nodding and flopping and ready to fall in a heap, where do you choose for a nap or a snooze - where is your favourite place to sleep?

Reviews

* Easy on the eye pictures of snoozing bees and yawning bats, lulls like a sleepy sigh, with facts never disturbing the book's dreamy night time feel. The Independent * Freeman's delicate shades illustrate this book to sympathetically classy and affectionate effect. A gentle, lilting picture book to share as you cosy up before bedtime. Junior * This is a stunning book, delightful and enchanting, and one that will ensure that every child understands, and indeed appreciates, that sleeping is an activity shared by all living creatures... the illustrations embody the text perfectly... rereads will no doubt be demanded. Write Away!
