A buoyant account of the nightly tug-of-war between a sleepy father and his son, and the richly imaginative “sleepy stories” they create

Each story told in Sleepy Stories drifts deeper into a beguiling dream world, telling of an elastic gentleman who stretches his body across town to effortlessly slip into bed, or of another sleepy young man who curls inside an upside-down umbrella to take a snooze. In Diego Bianki’s magical universe, the waking world is made small (a French press and a red top hat shrink before our eyes), while the dream world Levrero and his son Nicolás build together (a land of sly frogs, giant apes, and smiling squids) waltzes across the page. On the last of Bianki’s whimsical illustrations, Nicolás holds the book over his father’s nodding head and says, “Another.” This is a book to giggle with and curl up with, to take on every sleepy adventure.
