The Insomniacs by Karina Wolf illustrated by Brothers Hilts

While doing some work in the library I stumbled across the most enchanting new book.

The Insomniacs by Karina Wolf and illustrated by the Brothers Hilts (two actual brothers) caught my eye across the library floor.   First off I usually have trouble sleeping myself so the title drew me in, then it was the sweet Goreyesque illustrations that made me look more closely.   It was the most charming read.   Such a wonderful book that truly captivated me.     It has a nostalgic feel but with a modern sensibility.   I don't know what I love more the lyrical story or the mesmerizing illustrations.   I think this is a wonderful story time book that is also the perfect bedtime book.   I can see it being read during a pajama story time in the library or at bedtime with your little one.   This is a must have new book that has classic written all over it.  A must have book for any child's bookshelf and a perfect gift for families.
