Oh no!

This ABC is special. It has magical powers.

It *will* make you fall asleep. From wide-awake to catching Zzzz’s in a matter of minutes.

Look, even the title of the book has fallen asleep!

Will you be dreaming by D?

Snoring by S?

Yawning by Y?

Or zonked by Z?

Coupled with sparse, bold illustrations, this makes for an interesting ABC and a quirky concept for bedtime reading.
