A beautiful, meditative bedtime book about a lion who can’t sleep―until a friend offers sage advice. From Kate Greenaway Medal-winning author-illustrator Catherine Rayner.
Arlo is a very tired lion, and he’s tried everything to get to sleep. But the grass is too prickly, the trees are too noisy, and his family wriggles awfully too much. Goodness! How is an exhausted lion ever to get a wink of shuteye? Luckily, owl has a few tricks up her sleeve, and Arlo couldn’t be happier to give them a whirl.
Perfect for toddlers and reluctant sleepers, this gentle and humorous bedtime story has a calming message of mindfulness and centeredness that’s beautifully complemented by gorgeous watercolor, acrylic ink, and pencil art from award-winning author-illustrator Catherine Rayner.---from the publisher
