Sleepy the Goodnight Buddy will be out in stores all over the place on September 11th! Written by the world renowned Drew Daywalt (of The Day the Crayons Quit fame) and with pictures by me (scott c).
Sleepy, the Goodnight Buddy is the story of a boy named Roderick who has a difficult time getting to sleep. Difficult of his own choosing because he doesn't really want to go to bed. So his parents get him a GOODNIGHT BUDDY named SLEEPY to help him get the heck to sleep. Only problem is Sleepy is real annoying and keeps Roderick awake by being nuts. I will not tell you what happens, but i will say that it is a wild story. Drew wrote some super funny dialog. I had a great time illustrating it. Drew and I get along well with our JOKES.
Drew and I are embarking on a book tour for this thing this weekend! Starting with the reception at Gallery Nucleus in LA this Saturday, September 8th! We will have snacks and reading and drawing time together. It will be so fun. The show is already up, so you can go see it right now! Most of the SLEEPY artwork along with drawings from ADVENTURES IN DRAWING.
