A sleepytime book filled with tired animals and friendly flaps from the author-illustrator of the Oppenheim Gold Award winner Whose Hat is That?
"The art is colorful and engaging and the simple text has a defined focus. A quick story and exercise, perfect for nap or bed-time sharing."- School Library Journal
"Children can make ... animals yawn on the subsequent pages, and the effect is just as goofily charming each time. Finally, it’s the child’s turn to yawn and go to sleep, piled up with all of the sleepy animals. Resistance (to yawning) is futile." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"A well-illustrated, well-told repetitive-pattern book is worth its weight in gold in a classroom of beginning readers, and this one fills the bill perfectly....The repetition offers great support for fledgling readers, and the illustrations answer any remaining questions they might have. This book is right up there with the royalty of pattern books such as Bill Martin Jr.’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear (Holt, 1996) and Janet and Allan Ahlberg’s Each Peach Pear Plum (Puffin, 1986). Delightful and useful." -- School Library Journal (on WHOSE HAT IS THAT?)
After high school, I took drawing and painting lessons in small galleries in my neighborhood. And I learned a lot from drawing and painting books. But I also mastered many techniques simply by experimenting with them on my own.
When my children were still young, I read them a bedtime story every night. I rediscovered that some picture books are real pieces of art. That's when I got the ambition to make my very own picture books.
I was remarked by the jury of the Key Colours International Illustrators Award 2012. The book Whose Hat is That? was published by Clavis Publishing and every book I have made since has been even more successful.
