While You Are Sleeping

This is a gorgeous new book by Alexis Deacon. We all secretly believed as children (and some of us still do as adults!) that our bedside toys are awake all night to protect us and this book offers proof that the children are right. The story is written with a lovely lullabye-like cadence--perfect for a goodnight story. The drawings are soft and charming and each toys' personality is distinct despite the lack of dialogue. The illustration of the toys stomping bedbugs alone is worth the purchase price of the book!! Don't miss this one. -Rhiannon
