A non-fiction picture book. How do animals sleep? Some alone, some in packs, some upside-down, some in the daytime... Kate Prendergast takes a close look at the sleeping habits of a wide range of animals, birds and fish. Includes meerkats, bats, horses and dogs – and who knew that fish slept with their eyes open? A first information book, illustrated with beautiful close-ups of the animals featured, Sleep ends with a question – do animals dream? and four pages of curious animal facts.
After years of working in the transport industry and raising a son and daughter, Kate Prendergast's growing interest in illustration led to an MA degree in Childrens' Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. This is Kate's third picture book and a change of artwork style as her previous titles Dog On A Train and Dog On A Digger were both black and white illustrations.
