Synopsis

Arlo The Lion Who Couldn't Sleep is a beautifully illustrated story with a gentle mindfulness message from Kate Greenaway Medal winner Catherine Rayner – ideal for bedtime, and especially helpful for little ones who have trouble going to sleep.

Arlo the lion is exhausted. He just can't drop off, no matter what he tries. It's either too hot, or too cold; too loud or too quiet. But then he meets Owl. She can sleep through the day, which isn't easy when most other animals are awake! Will Arlo ever get any rest? Perhaps his new friend has some special tricks she can teach him ...

Does your child have trouble falling off to sleep? This dreamy bedtime book about an exhausted lion who just can’t drop off to sleep is the perfect antidote with its gentle mindfulness message
