Wow. This is a book to read slowly, to allow yourself and your audience time to luxuriate in the wonderful language and imagery.
“Now little fish lie still in a brook. Somewhere a story goes to sleep in a book.”
If you’re current internally scoffing, “Ha! Kids going to sleep, peaceful?” then I have an alternative for you. Strictly adults-only, this book sits in the controversial but hilarious basket, Go the f**k to sleep. Described as “a bedtime book for adults who live in the real world.”
Take your pick!
