Sleep Like a Tiger by Mary Logue

Description

In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny–like cadence: “Does everything in the world go to sleep?” the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides “in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,” she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenski’s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.

Sleep Like a Tiger
While working on Sleep Like a Tiger, I kept hearing the words from the poem by William Blake, "Tiger! Tiger! Burning bright, in the forests of the night..." I just had to work it into the book--lots of little hidden secrets.
