Zzzzz - The Book of Sleep

Zzzzz A Book of Sleep

Written and Illustrated by Il Sung Na

Published by Meadowside Children's Books

Picked up on a whim in a cheap book clearance sale at (of all places) our local garden centre, Il Sung Na's "Book of sleep" ended up being Charlotte's favourite "second" book for every bed time for the better part of a year. Can't think of a better recommendation than that really! It caught my eye because of the artwork and the sublime mix of gorgeous watercolours and inks compliment a lovely ethereal story of an Owl's nocturnal exploration of the animal kingdom. With Charlotte having something of an owl obsession anyway, it's a winner and stupidly cheap for the board book at Amazon. 

Charlotte's best bit: Spotting the tiny little owl hidden in several pages.

Daddy's favourite bit: The staring contest between the owl and a fish.
