Going to bed is a great adventure for one little boy in this charming tale. It might seem like he's putting his toys away, brushing his teeth and climbing into bed, but actually he's riding through a hallway forest, jumping over bathroom crocodiles and climbing a castle wall - no wonder he is exhausted and falls straight to sleep.
Owen grew up near Brighton and recently graduated from University College Falmouth, gaining a First in Illustration. He describes his style as contemporary and nostalgic and likes to use a palette of warm, muted colours. His previous title Foxly's Feast , also published by Templar, was his debut picture book, and was'Highly Commended' by the 2009 Macmillan Children's Book Prize, an illustration prize previously won by Sara Fanelli and Lucy Cousins.
