Feeling like you need to hibernate? Then we've got just the thing for you...

Sleep Well with Siba & Saba

We've fallen in love with the beautiful Sleep Well, Siba & Saba by Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl and illustrator Sandra van Doorn and think it's probably the perfect book to snuggle up with in bed.

The Kate Greenaway-nominated book is a perfect way to hide from January, with its tale of two sisters who dream about all the things they've lost each day - and then dream something very unexpected indeed.

And once you've savoured the book, we bet you'll be inspired by Sandra's stunning illustrations - so it's just as well that she's shared a lovely little lesson about how to draw Saba!

Grab your paper and pencils and watch the video below for an easy guide to drawing Saba... and you won't even have to emerge from your duvet to do it!
