When the sky grows dark
and the moon glows bright,
everyone goes to sleep…
except for the watchful owl!
With a spare, soothing text and beautifully rich and textured illustrations of a starry night, this is the perfect “book of sleep.” Join the owl on his moonlit journey as he watches all the other animals settle in for the night: some sleep standing up, while some sleep on the move! Some sleep peacefully alone, while others sleep all together, huddled close.
Il Sung Na makes his American debut with this gorgeous bedtime offering. While each animal rests in its own special way, little ones will also drift off to a cozy sleep.
Il Sung Na’s signature illustrations, full of unique patterns and stylized animals, bring character to this sweet book about different animals and the different ways that they sleep. “Some sleep standing up / While some sleep on the move.” It’s a calming read-aloud that will have little readers yawning (in a good way), while also learning something about animals and how they sleep.
