SOON YOU’LL BE SLEEPING. One Year of Good Night

Lisa Aisato, Haddy N’jie

Exceptionally beautiful picture book … The idea is just as simple as it is original, not to mention genial.
VG, 6 out of 6 stars

Turning the pages of this lovely book is like returning to childhood’s best and strongest children’s books memories … Through a combination of line drawing and watercolour, Lisa Aisato conjures up her characteristic pictures, with strong, evocative effects.
Dagbladet, 6 out of 6 stars

… a magnificent picture book.

…this year’s most beautiful book.


A beautifully illustrated good night story about the seasons of the year as they sleep and waken to life again.

Children sleep. Grown-ups sleep. Animals sleep. And the seasons sleep as well. When winter is awake, the other three sleep. And when winter is ready for sleep, spring wakes up from his dreams. Summer wakes after spring, and autumn follows after summer, and finally it is winter’s turn again.
