A dreamy bedtime book from award-winner Catherine Rayner about a wakeful lion who is desperate to get some sleep.
Arlo the lion is exhausted. He just can't drop off, no matter what he tries. It's either too hot, or too cold, too loud or too quiet, and his wriggly family aren't helping either! Will poor Arlo ever get some rest? Perhaps his new friend Owl will have some good ideas to help him fall asleep.
Arlo: The Lion Who Couldn't Sleep is a beautifully illustrated story with a gentle mindfulness message from Kate Greenaway Medal winner Catherine Rayner - perfect for bedtime and especially helpful for little ones who have trouble going to sleep.
Catherine Rayner studied illustration at Edinburgh College of Art. She is the creator of numerous picture books including: Abigail, Solomon Crocodile, Solomon and Mortimer, Smelly Louie, and Augustus and His Smile, for which she was awarded the prestigious CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. She is also the illustrator of The Go-Away Bird, written by bestselling children's author Julia Donaldson. Catherine still lives in Edinburgh with her young family and a small menagerie of creatures - Shannon the horse, Ena the cat, and a goldfish named Richard - all of whom inspire her work.
