Check out more picture book [email protected] Perspective of a riter ... Owl does n't get to sleep like the other animals do when night falls.

Finally when everyone else is waking up lonely owl is going to sleep.Oh my gosh this book!

I picked it up because of the cover art and I 've read some other Asian author picture books and they were excellent so I HAD to check this one out too ... AND IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!

My daughter had trouble picking which spread to drawn but finally settled on the horses who sleep standing up!

We giggled as we read through it, it was hilarious and I think with repeat exposure would help him understand about sleep.
