More About This Title Ferdinand Fox's Big Sleep


"Ferdinand Fox curled up in the sun as the church of St Mary struck quarter past one. His tummy was full, he was ready for sleep, and closing his eyes he began to count sheep..."

Beautifully illustrated, this is the first of six delightful rhyming stories for 3-6 year-olds about Ferdinand, a kindhearted urban fox. When Peter Maceever spots Ferdinand Fox sleeping in his garden and tiptoes out to take a photo, Ferdinand opens one eye and goes right back to sleep! He has far more important things to do - like dream about cake and ice cream!

Children and parents love the rhyme and vibrant colours - and the passing of time as the church clock strikes from one to five.

A 32-page colour picture book.

"Another delightful children's book from author Karen Inglis...a beautifully simple story about a sleeping Fox called Ferdinand. Despite the popularity of rhyming texts with children themselves, they are less popular with UK publishers. So it is lovely to see such a fun story wholly written in rhyme...truly a book for reading aloud again, and again, and again."
