A hilarious, illustrated book about bedtime

Klara can’t get to sleep. She does everything she can think of, like drinking extra water, taking an extra trip to the toilet, and trying to convince mummy to sing just one more lullaby. But no matter what she does, Klara feels wide awake.

And things doesn’t get any easier when Klara learns that the monster in the cupboard can’t sleep either! Wide Awake is the classic tale of a child who neither can nor will sleep – and about everything that happens when she tries.
