Fast forward to a few months later when I was browsing at my cool book store (AKA my local book exchange). There on the shelf sat A Book of Sleep.
It wasn't there next time!
Or the next time!
Or like 4 next times after that!!!!
Then one fateful day The Thingamabob appeared on the shelf so I snatched it up the second I saw it and of course didn't leave the store without it. Yes, I've learned my lesson.
Teacup in a Storm by Lucy M. George
(which appears to have been published in the UK under the title Brrrr)
AND new book that will be released in the US in 2014!! Hooray!
It's already hit the UK and is titled Shhh: A Book of Babies!
Perhaps you might like a link to his site? Here you go. And also you may be excited to know that A Book of Sleep has been turned into an app! (Or, like me, you may be angered to know it's not available in the US store...WHY?!?)
Now then, I'm sure you're wondering if I ever got a copy of my Il Sung Na gateway book.* Don't worry, A Book of Sleep did show up at my cool bookstore again, and I didn't wait...in fact I almost bought more than one copy (but I used restraint, which can be difficult for me when it comes to buying books.)
* a gateway book is the book that started the obsession with a certain topic, author, genre, etc... as coined by clever Vanessa!
