Kaninen som så gärna ville somna The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep

Sleep Series #1

The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep is the story of Roger the Rabbit, one tired little rabbit. But even though Roger is so tired, he cannot seem to fall asleep. Roger and Mommy Rabbit decide to go to Uncle Yawn to get help. On their way they meet the kind Sleepy Snail and the wise Heavy-Eyed Owl, who both give him good advice on how to fall asleep faster. Roger begins to feel sleepier... and sleepier... but the journey to Uncle Yawn continues. Finally arrived, Uncle Yawn sprinkles a magical sleeping powder over Roger. The little rabbit is now so sleepy he can hardly stay on his feet. Roger and Mommy Rabbit barely get home before Roger falls asleep in his bed, dreaming sweetly all night until the morning comes.

The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep has quickly become an invaluable book for parents all over the world. With the help of some simple instructions, moms and dads are coached in how to turn the bedtime story routine into an interactive and soothing experience guaranteed to lull their little ones to sleep. As simple and fun as reading a regular bedtime story, The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep is a new and safe way of relaxing your child with your own voice, making them fall asleep in the wink of an eye.


  • “In recent weeks [our] nightly torments have been relieved by a book called “The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep” — a book whose power­fully soporific effects my son is helpless to resist, and which as a result has had a transformative effect on the style and substance of his bedtime routine. /.../ Over successive nights, the story has a cumulatively calming effect; its repetitive prose, at times weirdly reminiscent of Gertrude Stein’s, is almost literally enchanting, as is the manner in which the sentences wander free of standard syntax, and even meaning, as if the text itself were drifting into a liminal territory between consciousness and dreams.”

    New York Times, ‘Letter of Recommendation’, US
