A lovely illustration from the collection of classic children's poetry in Leave Your Sleep. This book was adapted to music by Natalie Merchant, and opens the door to a wondrous world filled with witches and fearless girls, blind men and elephants, giants and sailors and dancing bears. It features a daring and delightful selection, ranging from the beloved to the undiscovered. Natalie Merchant's brilliant musical renderings, selected from her highly praised album, share the stage with Barbara McClintock's richly imagined art to create a memorable reading, looking, and listening experience.
Award-winning children’s book author and illustrator Barbara McClintock draws like a dream; her “beautifully restrained use of color may evoke a long-ago time, but her compositions are so dynamic that there's always something for contemporary children to discover.” [Michael Cart, Booklist] Full of humor and wit and strong characterizations, her books are timeless charmers. McClintock's books have won five New York Times Best Books awards, a New York Times Notable Book citation, a Boston Globe/Horn Book Honor award, and numerous other awards, recommended/best book lists, and starred reviews.
