Description

In this classic children's book, a girl wakes up in the middle of the night and wants some cake. But to reach the refrigerator, she has to tiptoe past a host of sleeping dragons, like Priscilla in her pink pantaloons, the punk rock dragon Fagan with spiky green hair, and Beelzebub (who sleeps in the tub). When she stubs her toe, the dragons wake up, and she has to think fast to befriend the dragons.
An award-winning bestseller first published in 1989, Sleeping Dragons All Around is back to spark the imaginations of a whole new generation. Sheree Fitch's celebrated lipslippery poetry and Michele Nidenoff's colourful illustrations combine to make one of the most delightful children's books ever published in Canada.


Sheree Fitch has read this book to audiences from sea to sea to sea in Canada, in the Himalayas, and along the eastern coast of Africa. Her first two books, Toes in My Nose and Sleeping Dragons All Around, launched her career as a poet, rhymster, and a "kind of Canadian female Dr. Seuss." Fitch has won almost every major award for Canadian children's literature since then, including the 2000 Vicky Metcalf Award for a Body of Work Inspirational to Canadian Children. She has over twenty-five books to her credit. Fitch's home base is the east coast of Canada. She dances with dragons daily.

Michelle Nidenoff's illustrations have been featured in magazines and children's books, including The Canadian Children's Treasury. Among her credits is a bronze award from the Broadcast Design Association in Ontario. She lives in Toronto.
