My first graphic novel, ninety-four pages and in full colour!
The Sleepwalkers are three friendly sheep who travel through dreams in their nightmare-seeking house to help humans who are lost in fear. They have knowledge, kindness – and the Sword of Rin, Slayer of Trouble.
But they are old, and it is time to conjure a team of apprentices… this is the story of a new Beginning. Will Bonifacius the bear be afraid every single day of his life? Is there anything that Amali the sock monkey can’t do best? And does it matter that Sophia the crow doesn’t have a head?
But most of all, can they be a team of true heroes?
You will meet beasts and monsters great and small, prehistoric and mechanical, deafening, invisible, friendly and hungry. You will see places above the sky, under the sea, and the very heart of darkness. You may turn into a tree, or learn to fly a plane.
And also you will learn to make a friend out of socks and a breakfast drink to get you through dreadful times. And I’ve included blueprints of some of the more interesting vehicles.
Published by Walker Books in the UK and Australia, and Candlewick Press in the U.S. – ask your local book store!
