The Sleepwalkers

By Silvia Viviane Schwarz, Viviane Schwarz

Bad dreams just got good in this inventive and bold new graphic novel from Kate Greenaway shortlisted Viviane Schwarz.

When you are afraid to fall asleep, when all your dreams are nightmares, write us a letter, put it under your pillow, we will rescue you... It is almost time for the old and tired Sleepwalkers to return to the waking world. But before they go, they must conjure and train three new replacements. For who else will look after the Sleepwalking House and be there to answer the call of a child frozen stiff with fear, trapped in a nightmare? This is the story of the NEW Sleepwalkers... Filled with action and adventure, and all things that go bump in the night, three brave new heroes tackle the weird and the wild in this uplifting and reassuring story about pulling together as a team and having the confidence to stand up to your fears.

  • A striking new direction for Viviane Schwarz, shortlisted for the 2010 Kate Greenaway Prize.
  • The perfect antidote to any child's worrisome, sleepless nights.
  • Created in the classic tradition of comic books, this accessible format is ideal for newly-independent readers, and developing visual literacy.
