Someone's ready for bed, but it's going to take a long, long time to say goodnight
Echoing the loving goodnight rituals that will be familiar to many a parent and child, Andrew Daddo's gentle text, with softly hued illustrations by Emma Quay, is just the thing for coaxing an active toddler to sleep.
Emma Quay wanted to be a children's book illustrator from a very early age. After moving from England to Australia in 1993, she began her illustrating career and has since become one of Australia's most sought-after picture-book artists. She has won numerous awards, including the 2010 CBC Early Childhood Book of the Year for 'Bear and Chook by the Sea' (written by Lisa Shanahan). Emma lives in Sydney with her husband and two young daughters.
