Poppy and Sam and the Search for Sleep


Strawberry-sized sleuths Poppy and Sam are back on the job!

The seasons are changing in the garden, and Poppy and her panda buddy, Sam, are stocking up for a long winter’s nap. There’s just one problem: Poppy can’t sleep! Determined to hibernate like her friends, Poppy, with Sam in tow, goes hunting for advice on how to get to sleep.

Other garden creatures are full of ideas on how to nod off. The bees suggest snuggling into a honeycomb. The frog says a mug of fly milk does the trick, while the ants recommend a good book before bed. But will anything actually help Poppy fall asleep?

New in paperback, the third book in the Poppy and Sam series is a picture book/graphic novel hybrid full of delightful, detailed illustrations, adorable characters, and a sweet, funny storyline sure to draw young readers in.
