can't sleepI Can’t Sleep by Stephanie Blake. Pub Gecko Press 2017.

I admit I am addicted to these picture books about Simon, the rabbit with a great imagination. This latest book keeps my addiction going and it is available for purchase in August.

Simon and his little brother Casper decide to build a MEGA GIGA-NORMOUS hut out of Casper’s blanky. The reader will rightly pick that there is trouble ahead when it is bed time. Casper can’t sleep without his blanky and Simon has to assume his alter ego identity, Super Rabbit, to rescue the situation.

Great fun with the familiar big font text and whole page primary colour illustrations, to accentuate the drama of the story. Blues and black for the night and brighter colours for day time and the monster.

Good read-a-loud for juniors and a knowing laugh for adults.
