"Sleep is very important.
Lots of things happen in our bodies as we sleep."

This picture book tells stories about how us and other animals sleeps differently. Some animals sleep in the daylight while others prefer to sleep at night. Some even sleep with one eye open to prepare for any sudden attack. 

I often painted the illustrations when I had to stay awake at night, which was ironically funny because the book is completely opposed to that. I guess other night owlers will understand :D
