Life often brings you in touch with the right people at the right times, and it has a ripple effect too! One such wonderfully right person – Katie at Hungry For Books I met via the blogging world calls this her “Suzanne” effect. And it was Katie who introduced me to Edite, and I ended up with receiving Tyler’s book The Slumbering Pearl in the mail a few days ago!! And I am delighted to be able to offer one other reader (in the US only) a chance to have this book for their own. The giveaway is on my Instagram account so do head out there to enter and to spread the word too! Thank you so much.

Deep beneath the turquoise sea, there lives a Pearl…
…And when she sleeps, something wonderful and mysterious happens. The Slumbering Pearl dreams the Universe. But there is a problem. Although she is very tired, the Pearl refuses to sleep. Can the other creatures of the sea help her sleep so she can dream the Universe into existence?
What can I say about a book that captures magical whimsy and the vastness of the universe all within its pages so effortlessly?
The Slumbering Pearl takes its readers on a journey into a fantastical underwater world inhabited by beautiful dreams; or at least it seems so to me.
Like many little ones, Pearl, the sweet protagonist of this book is reluctant to fall asleep. She definitely has a case of FOMO:) Jokes aside, she needs to sleep; and we watch as all the underwater creatures put their best efforts to get her to sleep. Each one of those efforts helps illustrate how limitless imagination and creativity truly are.
Will she fall asleep? What will happen if she doesn’t, and what will happen if she will?
Read this book to find out how this delightful story plays out from start to end. Perfect for bedtime readings and at other times too.
And then there are the illustrations by @gitatreice! They are adorable, breathtaking, ethereal, frame-worthy, and full of whimsical fancies.
You cannot avoid falling in love with Pearl, her luminous eyes (aren’t they simply gorgeous!), with the world she is in, and the book itself(both the story and the artwork). Get this book for yourself and/or for a loved one. You can thank me later!!
A fantastic fantastical book that is a must-have.
A big thank you to Edite @slumberingpearl for reaching out to me and thanks to Edite and Tyler for sending across a copy of this book. All opinions are my own; and I am truly thankful to have this book as part of my home library now.
Note: be sure to check out their website for delightful information about the book, as well as cool products featuring the stunning artwork from the book.
