Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this board book version of the beautiful, lilting text, a mother tells her daughter about how, while she was sleeping, different animals around the world have been awake and playing, hiding, hunting. John Butler's stunning artwork and knowledge of wildlife shows each animal in its natural habitat, and you can count up from one elephant to ten tigers through to one hundred pen guins.
