Before I Wake Up…
Asleep and dreaming, the little girl in this book floats through a shadowy and beautiful blue-black world with her friend, a watchful lion, at her side. They fly past the stars and over the seas, braving storms and worries, knowing that they are strong together. They also navigate the woods, where they meet wild creatures.
Finally, as the little girl wakes, the pages change from night colours into the bright yellow of a wonderful new day.
Britta Teckentrup is a gifted illustrator-writer, and this is a wonderful, poetic and stylish book about sleep and the strange but wonderful voyages we all take every night into the realm of dream.
