Before I Wake Up…, Paperback / softback Book

Before I Wake Up… Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A young girl falls asleep and travels in her dreams through the sky, down to the ocean's depths, and into a jungle.

She is accompanied by a lion friend, who eases her fears, gives her confidence, and helps her explore the world around her.

Along the way she meets whales, jellyfish, grizzly bears and wolves.

Then it is time for the moon balloon to take the girl home to her bed, where she awakes, snuggled safely next to the lion, who returns to being a stuffed toy.

Award-winning children's illustrator Britta Teckentrup's collage-like artwork creates a magical world of captivating colors, classic shapes, and softly detailed textures.

The gently told story reassures children that they are never alone, even in their dreams.

Exquisitely produced, this book is certain to become a pre-bedtime favorite for children and their parents.
