Praise for Sleepy, Oh So Sleepy

“Seemingly tailored to the smallest listeners, the simple, patterned text and repeated refrain make it easy for them to join in the reading… The author’s signature pulp-painting illustrations fill the spreads with mottled jewel tones and the texture of the handmade paper.  Audience participation required…likely again and again and again.” --Kirkus Reviews, Starred

“With mesmerizing words rolling along, this large-format bedtime book does its job so well that it’s hard to repress a yawn when the story winds down to its quiet ending.” -- Booklist, http://www.marthagraham.org/

“Fleming’s pulp papermaking technique, with its soft edges, warm colors, and highly textured look, gives this book just the right tone…a pleasing sight.” -- School Library Journal
