'Sleep Well' Siba & Saba
by Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl
Age Range: Under_5
Sisters Siba and Saba are always losing things. Not a day goes by without them losing something – two pairs of silver sandals on a beach, seven jumpers on seven buses and even their slippers on a sleepover. When the two sisters fall asleep each night, they dream about delicious sweets but also manage to find all the things they have lost during the day. Until, one night, their dreams begin to reveal something entirely unexpected.
Set in Uganda, this charming story by Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl has a gentle poetic narrative that ebbs and flows from page to page. The gorgeous expressive artwork by French illustrator Sandra van Doorn, now based in Australia, conveys a real richness of colour evoking the vibrancy of its setting, whether it’s the market place or an idyllic beach which makes this book a joy to look at.
