About the book: Sweet Dreamers

What do animals dream about? Does a snail dream of a fresh lettuce leaf? Does a cat, during its countless naps, dream of new acrobatics? What about koalas, giraffes, or whales? In this charming book, we follow the planet’s animals as they sleep, exploring their simple and comforting dreams. Simler invites us to share the intimacy of sleep with the titular sweet dreamers, showing readers the peace and tenderness that comes to us all when we dream.

Written and illustrated by Isabelle Simler and translated from the French by Sarah Ardizzone, Prix Sorcières 2018 nominee Sweet Dreamers will be published in the United States on March 26, 2019 from Eerdmans.
