' 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.

Because all heroes begin as children with a dream, hopefully books like this one bring them closer to that dream.' — Ezekiel Kwaymullina
