I've just received my copies of a new book that I illustrated for Templar Publishing. It was written by Meg and Catherine Pybus, a mother-daughter team. The book is designed to make little ones calm and hopefully fall asleep. It has a lovely audio CD too, guaranteed to make you ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzz.
It's Snorey Time (January 2012) Written by Meg and Catherine Pybus
Meet the Snoreys – Mummy, Daddy, Mop, Snuggle, Snuffle and Pignut. This family of dormice love to sleep, all except the youngest, Pignut. Instead, he goes on an adventure around the forest and discovers the dormouse-written 'Secret Book of Sleep'. Reading it, Pignut finally drops off. Underlying this delightful tale is a secret weapon for exhausted parents – the story is written using simple neurolinguistic techniques, designed to have a soporific effect on the listener. Also includes an audio version of the tale.

I had such fun working on the illustrations for this story. And Templar are a dream to work for. Big thanks to Mike Jolly!
Here we have pignut trying to hang like his friend Batty. Although dormice are excellent climbers, little Pignut is rather sleepy and he falls down, down, down onto a pile of leaves. But there is someone under the the leaves, trying to sleep.
The end... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!
