Poppy Tried to Sleep

Mimi King

“Poppy Tried to Sleep” is the first book of the Poppy series and all this hardworking Poppy needs is a good night’s sleep. But, it’s not as easy as it sounds! One thing after another keeps poor Poppy awake.
Discover why even though Poppy always works hard, just one day, he needs to have a little nap after his morning tea.
Children can look for Poppy’s dog, Brick and his cat, Tootz. Can they find the kangaroos, the cockatoos and the worms? Children will be entertained and amused by the details in the illustrations.
“Poppy Tried to Sleep” is most suited to 3 to 8 year olds. However, there is no reason why it could not still be enjoyed by anyone between the ages of 9 months to 99 years.
