This comic in children’s book format chronicles the silly struggles of waking up and getting out of bed.
As all kids know, waking up in the morning is hard to do! So finally here are three lighthearted stories that speak to the plight of the night owl. In the first story, Jake is snoozing so soundly that the whole neighborhood must band together to wake him up. In the second, “Sleepyhead” wakes up late and her whole family races to get her ready for school. In the third, three lazy brothers strive to be the laziest one of all.
In Wake Up, Sleepyhead!, Levin Kipnis’ amusing rhymes are perfectly paired with Noam Weiner’s hilariously expressive illustrations. These comically anarchic tales are a delightful read for sleepy kids and the parents who rouse them from their slumber.
About the Author
LEVIN KIPNIS (1890–1990) is an author known for his beloved Hebrew stories, poems, and songs for children.
NOAM WEINER is a Tel-Aviv-born Cologne-based illustrator, cartoonist, and typographer.
Weiner’s visual characterizations are an unalloyed delight. With a sinewy line, an eye for domestic detail, and a sly sense of color, the artist conjures up a cornucopia of generations, body types, and personalities, all marvelously alive and specific.
