Every evening, when the sun sets and everyone else is going to bed, Jacob the Sandman awakes and starts work.
One night Jacob sleeps too deeply and wakes up late! He rushes to Dream Sand Hill, but there, atop the pile of dream sand, is a scary Night Monster snoring his terrible snore.
Jacob the Sandman must collect the magic dream sand so that the children of the world can dream happy dreams. Fortunately, the Night Monster turns out not to be so scary after all.
A beautiful bedtime tale, the luminous illustrations by much-loved artist Daniela Drescher will make this a new nighttime favorite.
