9780091893316: While You Are Sleeping

We are the bedside toys.

Do you ever stop to think what we go through,

night after night, while you are sleeping?

Every day they sit as still as stone but at night the bedside team come to life; scaring away bad dreams, squishing the bed bugs flat and even checking for monsters. Itís hard work, but in the morning, when their owner awakes, the bedside toys are richly rewarded. With breathtaking illustrations and poignant text, this wonderfully atmospheric picture book is suffused with magic.

Review:

"Distinctive and contains surprising details . . . The words, medium and technique are all suitably soothing and sleepy, making this an ideal bedtime book" (Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times)

"A stunningly beautiful book by one of the finest artists to emerge onto the picture book scene in recent years . . . Deacon brings such originality and sensitivity to the idea through his sublime draughtsmanship that we are instantly transported to a wholly convincing night-time world" ( Books for Keeps)

"Alexis Deacon handles the familiar subject of toys coming to life with grace and enchantment . . . The book's eerie cosyness and exquisite figure drawing is loaded with heart" ( TES)

"Beautifully illustrated" ( Sunday Express)

"There are lots of books about anthropomorphised toys . . . but few achieve the beauty and sympathy of this one. To be treasured" (Valerie Coghlan Inis)

Book Description:

Acclaimed author-illustrator Alexis Deacon has produced another beautiful, haunting picture book full of warmth and gentle humour.
