During the day, the boy has been to the zoo where he has seen a lion and her cub. As nighttime falls, the boy and his father share a book. It's the boy's bedtime, but the boy is not sleepy. He is still with the lions. Sleepy Boy is a lovely hymn from a new author -- a hymn to day and to night, to awake and to asleep, to mother and child, to father and son.

In this "portrait of blissful intimacy" (Booklist), a little boy has had a day of excitement watching lions at the zoo and, while sleepy, can't go to sleep. As he cuddles with his father, the boy imagines a mother lion with her cub, and he's reminded of the cub again when he snuggles against his daddy's stubbly chin. Softly lit, slightly surreal, and "exquisite" (Publishers Weekly) illustrations extend the cozy, comforting mood of this soporific bedtime read.
