Young cats are on the hunt for a mouse named Sleepy inLet’s Get Sleepy!, an energetic picture book fromNew York Times-bestselling author and illustrator Tony Cliff.
These cats are on an adventure to find that darn mouse named Sleepy.
But Sleepy is a sneaky mouse—he’s hard to find. The cats will have to look everywhere: all over town, out by the beach, up in space, and even back in time with the dinosaurs! Can the cats catch that mouse? Even if they don’t, at the end of the day, they may just get "sleepy" after all.
While seek-and-find elements are at work in the adorable artwork, the rhyming text reminds readers that the journey is more important than the destination—and that the most valuable treasure is a day richly lived with friends.
