Flying Eye Books have consistently proved themselves open to publishing titles that not only look fantastic, but challenge children's curiosity and imagination in equal measure.
Taking one of Robert Louis Stevenson's short poems for children, and adapting it into the perfect pre-bedtime read, Robert Hunter's version of "The Land of Nod" once again makes children feel that there is indeed magic in the world, and that the adventure doesn't stop just because you need to sleep.
The nameless young boy in the story settles down for the night, surrounded by his favourite toys and as he drifts off, those toys become his steadfast and gallant companions on a nighttime adventure. The Land of Nod is full of wonders to behold, and dangers to be faced...
|The boy's toys come magically to life as he enters the Land of Nod|
|The Land of Nod is full of excitement and peril. Sometimes you need a mess of help to stand alone!|
Enter The Land of Nod. It'll be an unforgettable journey!
Charlotte's favourite bit: All the amazing giant-sized versions of the boy's toys ready to join him on an adventure
Daddy's favourite bit: A gorgeous and luxurious book with a fabulous twist and message conveyed with the sort of flair and brilliance we always expect from authors and illustrators lucky enough to find themselves under Flying Eye's wing. A feast, a veritable book feast so fully indulge yourself, it's glorious!
