Soon You'll Sleep. A Year's Goodnights
Snart sover du. Et års godnatt
Children sleep. Grown-ups sleep. Animals sleep. And the seasons of the year sleep too. While Winter is awake, the other three are sleeping. When Winter needs to fall asleep, Spring wakens up from her dreams. After Spring, Summer wakens up, and after Summer comes Autumn, and then it’s Winter again.
Sisters Haddy Jatou N’jie and Lisa Aisato have long wanted to create a picture-book together. A goodnight book about the seasons of the year as they sleep and waken to life again. A goodnight book to read at bedtime, all year round.
Winner of The Mrs. Pepperpot award 2016.
