Every evening, when the sun sets and everyone else is going to bed, Jacob the Sandman wakes up and starts work.
Then one night Jacob sleeps too deeply and wakes up late! He rushes to Dream Sand Hill but there, atop the pile of dream sand, is a scary Night Monster, snoring his terrible snore.
Jacob the Sandman must collect the magic dream sand so that the children of the world can dream happy dreams. Fortunately, the Night Monster turns out to be not so scary after all.
This beautiful bedtime tale is perfect for encouraging sweet dreams and banishing nightmares. The luminous illustrations by much-loved artist Daniela Drescher will make this a new night-time favourite.
‘A lovely story of open-mindedness and friendship that relates its message to the reader with a light touch. Drescher’s dreamy illustrations are sweet and sleepy, depicting a world of magical creatures that invites you to visit it in your sleep.’
