I blogged about the making of Goodnight Everyone here
It is a book about going to sleep, and also about scale.
here are some pages:
“A stunning, beautiful and gloriously produced book” – The Irish Mail on Sunday
“Haughton’s block illustrations are simple but striking, with beautiful maps of the night sky just inside the covers: the visual equivalent of a warm blanket, and an ideal bedtime read” – Irish Times
“Chris Haughton’s blocky, expressive style and terse text are teamed with cut pages in a richly coloured, hypnotic ode to sleep; this perfect starlit bedtime book will have parents yawning dangerously alongside their offspring” – The Guardian, Children’s roundup
“Cut pages are cleverly used to take the reader on a journey through the woods, while repetitive, sleepy actions and a well-paced text make this a pleasure to read aloud.” The Bookseller
“The visuals are the main appeal of this beautiful bedtime book, which explodes with a fantastic pink-and-purple starry colour palette, as well as having a simple and lulling bedtime story that will help little ones yawn along.” Booktrust
School Library Journal.
'VERDICT A stunning picture book for sharing during storytimes or quiet times before bed, this is a must for all collections'
