Wendy and the Wallpaper Cat
Jason Hook, illustrated by Ilaria Demonti
A beautifully illustrated and original bedtime story inspired by the classic designs of Walter Crane. Wendy can't sleep, no matter what she tries. She counts sheep, reads books and even turns somersaults - but nothing works. Eventually Wendy's parents take her on holiday to stay at her grandfather's house, and he invites Wendy to stay in whichever room is her favourite. Wendy is amazed to discover interiors covered in wallpapers that come to life, and their sights, sounds and smells fill her head with images and ideas. As she wanders happily from room to room, she finally finds a way to drift off to sleep.
