The full story

Arlo The Lion Who Couldn't Sleep is about an exhausted lion who just can't find a way to nod off. He's either too hot, or too cold; it's too loud or too quiet. But then he meets Owl who teaches him some special tricks. A beautifully illustrated story with a gentle mindfulness message from award-wining author-illustrator Catherine Rayner that was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal. It's an ideal bedtime book for any kid that has trouble going to sleep.
