Back To Sleep
Designer: Brumby Sunstate
A warm and funny bedtime story where it’s the parents who won’t go to sleep. A perfect follow-up picture book to No One Likes a Fart by the inimitable Zoë Foster Blake.
Back to Sleep is a reflection of Zoë Foster Blake’s much-loved brand and profile, told with authenticity and humour born of experience.
Poor Finn is looking forward to drifting off to sleep in his cosy warm bed when Mummy appears wanting a drink. Finn resettles her and has just fallen asleep when he’s woken again . . . this time by Daddy, who’s had a bad dream. And so it goes. Just when Finn has one parent back to sleep, the other wakes up! When will these two sleep through the night?
A clever, playful, laugh-out-loud story that celebrates the ups and downs of family life. Kids and parents will enjoy sharing this gorgeous bedtime story.
About the Author
Zoë Foster Blake enjoys writing her biography because she can write things like, ‘The literary world was shocked when Foster Blake was controversially awarded the Man Booker prize for the third time’, despite the fact that this is patently untrue. Things that are true include a decade of journalism writing for titles such as Cosmopolitan, Harper’s BAZAAR and Sunday Style, as well as being the founder of all-natural Australian skin care line, Go-To.
Zoë has written four novels, Air Kisses, Playing the Field, The Younger Man and The Wrong Girl; a dating and relationship book, Textbook Romance, written in conjunction with Hamish Blake; and Amazinger Face, a collection of her best beauty tips and tricks. She lives in Springfield with her husband, Homer, and her three children, Maggie, Lisa and Bart.
About the Illustrator
Mike Jacobsen had his first exhibition at the age of three, when he drew a powerfully expressive portrait on the wall above his parents' bed. His parents remarked that it left an indelible impression upon them. And the wall. He's been drawing ever since, for clients such as Disney, Apple, The Guardian, 20th Century Fox and Lonely Planet, always adding a dash of humour whenever he can.
