Goodnight, Little Tough Guy
The lion tamers are lazily lounging. The superheroes are settling down. The firefighters are fitting in forty fabulous winks. And the astronauts are already asleep. After a long, hard day of being very strong and powerful, it's time for the tough guys to settle down for a peaceful night's sleep...

I remember so clearly when my kids were really little they just seemed to be go-go-go until suddenly they slipped into slumberland. 'Goodnight Little Tough Guy' is a non-gendered book about rough and tumble boys and girls who have dropped off to sleep mid-play. Told with humour, has quirky illustrations and features awesome alliteration (which is an excellent device for children learning letter-sound recognition), "Goodnight Little Tough Guy' will quickly become a firm bedtime favourite.
