Are You Awake? by Sophie Blackall

When Z saw a copy of Are You Awake?, written and illustrated by Sophie Blackall, on my bed, he said, “Mom, that looks like such a kiddy book.”

I laughed and told him it was about a boy named Edward who couldn’t go to sleep. When I got ready to take a photo to accompany my article on Suite 101, he came into the guest room to find out why I was taking pictures of the bed. My plan was to take a photo of a pillow to pair with the book review. That is…until he volunteered to get into the picture.

It was perfect because he can be an Edward sometimes. So that’s the story of how Z ended up in my photo. It’s a cute book. I hope you like the review.
