Sam is going to bed, but his big sister Lily gets to stay up a little longer. Suddenly Sam no longer feels sleepy. There’s clearly a tiger lurking behind the door, and a gorilla, maybe even a crocodile and a pike! Sam is scared, and he needs his father to stay with him.

Sleep now Sam tells the story that is oh so familiar to parents, when bedtime takes forever and nerves are frayed.

The first collaboration between two acclaimed artists, Swedish writer Ylva Karlsson and Finnish illustrator Erika Kallasmaa, the book’s humorous story and perceptive illustration vividly capture a child’s lively mind and makes the reader guess what is true and what is imagination.

bedtime – sleeplessness – imagination – family – single parent
