Created by the world-renowned children's
author and illustrator Britta Teckentrup,
this dreamy, colorful nighttime journey
will captivate and soothe young children
everywhere. A young girl falls asleep and travels in her dreams through
the sky, down to the ocean's depths, and into a jungle. She is
accompanied by a lion friend, who eases her fears, gives her
confidence, and helps her explore the world around her. Along
the way she meets whales, jellyfish, grizzly bears and wolves.
Then it is time for the moon balloon to take the girl home to
her bed, where she awakes, snuggled safely next to the lion,
who returns to being a stuffed toy. Award-winning children's
illustrator Britta Teckentrup's collage-like artwork creates a
magical world of captivating colors, classic shapes, and softly
detailed textures. The gently told story reassures children
that they are never alone, even in their dreams. Exquisitely
produced, this book is certain to become a pre-bedtime
favorite for children and their parents.
