We All Sleep 2015 single work picture book children's

' We All Sleep is one of those books that bathes the reader in luscious colour! Ezekiel and Sally take us through an array of well-known Australian animals and their day-time behaviours, adeptly drawing all and sundry together at the end of the day to sleep underneath the stars, reinforcing our bond with nature. The beautiful illustrations are diverse and evocative for those of us who love Australian landscapes – from pink skies to green waves, purple hills and shady forests. We All Sleep works beautifully when read aloud. It is very lyrical and perfect at the day’s end for busy littlies! ' (Publication summary)
