Sleepytime Me

Sleepytime Me coverWritten by Edith Hope Fine
Illustrated by Christopher Denise
  • 2015 Paterson Prize
  • A "little gem of a book . . ." -School Library Journal

Splashy sunset paints the sky.
Shy moon tiptoes, climbs up high . . .

Daylight is fading and night is drawing in. Time for bed. The wide world settles down, coming ever closer to home with good-night hugs and kisses for a little sleepyhead. Richly painted, evocative scenes illuminate the text, imbuing the whole with a sense of comfort and warmth, making this a bedtime story to treasure for all time.

Over the course of twenty years, Sleepytime Me evolved, gliding from 1500+ words to 138. Christopher Denise’s sumptuous illustrations prove that our Random House editor was right when she said, "Christopher is a genius with light."
