Follow these sleepyheads on a bedtime adventure in this adorable layered board book. “It’s time to go to bed, but the fire’s still so bright, So let’s tell the moon a story, and wish it good night!” Pirate treasure, soaring spaceships, and a roaring T. Rex—storytime is a wondrous adventure! Follow along with these sleepyheads as storytime becomes sleepytime in this beautifully illustrated diecut diorama storybook.
The illustrations in this one are truly adorable, but fair warning: the lift-the-flaps are kind of flimsy. The cadence is also off, and I often found myself having to go back and re-read portions to try to get it to sound more natural, which is slightly painful.
Maggie Fischer is originally from Oregon but moved to San Diego, California, after receiving her B.A. in English from Gonzaga University. The daughter of a children’s librarian, Maggie has books in her blood, and relishes the opportunity to write and edit books for kids. She spends her time forgetting to take advantage of the beach, pretending the neighbor’s cat is her own, and listening to true crime podcasts that keep her up at night.
My name is Dan. I’m an illustrator. I live and work in the United Kingdom and was born in Staffordshire.
Ever since I was teeny, I have always had a crayon in hand and I would draw and paint all the time when I was young. I loved drawing so much that I went to study art at college and university.
It was there that I discovered my work might be good enough for children’s books (luckily some nice people in publishing thought that too) and the rest is history!
I’m lucky enough to have illustrated many titles for a wide range of publishers in both the UK and the USA.
My most recent title is ‘But the Bear Came Back’ written by Tammi Sauer and published by Sterling which will be available in April 2018.
