It’s that special time again! We’re revealing the cover of our next release. Tabitha Won’t Sleep is a children’s picture book by the author/artist duo David McLain (Time Traveller’s Resort and Museum) and Felix Eddy (A Bestiary Alphabet) intended for young readers and parents of future young readers, especially those who find bedtime a challenge or who simply love to imagine far away places and wondrous things.
Here’s the cover:
It’s eight bells, and Tabitha Winter doesn’t want to go to sleep.
“Well, it’s time to go to bed,” Mama Kitty says. “Come on, let’s put your jammies on. Dad will read you a story.”
Tabitha Won’t Sleep is a beautifully illustrated picture book about a young kitten whose parents encourage her to believe that she can do anything she wants to, as long as she goes to sleep first. Children will love exploring the wonderful adventures Tabitha has in mind as she tries to avoid bedtime, and adults will love that in the end, everyone goes to sleep. Seriously, it’s past eight-thirty. Lay down your head and close your eyes.
