Do you want to sleep in a tree like a koala?

How about at the bottom of the ocean like a whale?

Or upside down in a cave like a bat?  

Discover how different creatures go to sleep at night and imagine yourself snuggling down with them at bed time.  

You can also try and spot the playful caterpillar hidden on every page.

Annabel Gardiner grew up in Bristol and has a BA Honours degree in English Literature from Queen's University Belfast. She now resides in Wiltshire with her family, Coco the dog and Scout the Shetland pony. Her debut novel "So How Will You Sleep" has been inspired and written for her two young children who share her passion for animals from all corners of the world.  When she is not writing, Annabel can be found riding horses or walking in the countryside.

    Really well-written book which my children loved. Ideal for bedtime reading with a lovely tempo and soporific quality.
    Would highly recommend it and can’t wait to read more of Annabel’s work!

  • Mr. Alistair M Tones

    This book is a lovely calm read, our twin girls really enjoy reading it before bed, teaching them a bit about animals at the same time. The illustrations are very nice as well.

    So How Will You Sleep? by Annabel Gardiner is an absolutely beautiful book and just perfect for young children.
    Each page explores how different animals’ sleep. With simple rhyme and repetition, it is a book that will encourage children to join in with the words. As older children follow along, the repetition will help them learn to read. Even as I read the book in my head, the words bounced along.
    The whole book Is beautifully illustrated by Samantha Thorley. We see each animal asleep but so much more than that is contained within each page – whilst viewing a fox asleep, we see a mole is digging. The illustrations are all starting points for wider discussions with our children about animals and their habitats, which animals sleep at night and which are nocturnal.
    On every page, there is the added bonus of looking for the caterpillar. Even as an adult I found myself hunting for him!
    So How Will You Sleep? is a beautiful book to grace the bookshelves of all households with young children? It is a book to savour and to treasure.
    I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
