This little cat needs a nap, but it's hard to find time for sleep when you're busy playing! Will he ever close his eyes?  Style, simplicity and humour combine to make this original and engaging look at naptime a real must-have for all young children and their grown-ups. Fresh, funny and utterly relatable, with a playful, pitch-perfect text. The start of a brilliant new series that will delight young and old, from an undeniable picture book talent.

Cat Nap is a wonderful, humorous first book of Steve Antony’s character-led stories for young children. The limited language, focusing on nouns, makes this book perfect for the young child who is just learning the pleasure that books bring. The clear, bold illustrations are sure to capture their attention.

This would be the perfect book to share with a child before nap time as the narrative will be completely relatable and objects around them will add context. Most parents and children alike will relate to the challenges of napping when playtime is over.

I am sure that this book will become a firm favourite in homes and nurseries. I look forward to reading more in this series.
