    About Gaia Cornwall & The Best Bed for Me

    From the creator of Jabari Jumps and Jabari Tries, the tale of a stalling child with a lively imagination—and a passion for animal facts—makes for the best kind of bedtime story.

    Mama and Mommy would like Sweet Pea to settle into bed, but it’s not quite time. Even though the bed is fluffy, it’s not as snuggly as curling up like a pig in the mud, or as spacious as sleeping in the wide ocean like a blue whale. It’s not as fun as sleeping high up in a tree like a koala, or hanging upside down like a bat. And it’s definitely not as relaxing as sleeping standing up, like an emperor penguin. But after mimicking all the ways different animals rest, this little one concedes that a comfy bed, a soft pillow, and a good-night wish offer the best way to fall asleep after all. Gaia Cornwall brings us a loving, humorous story for even the most energetic of bedtime listeners.

    Gaia Cornwall loves to write and illustrate for children. She is the author-illustrator of Jabari Jumps, her debut picture book, which was a Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book and an American Library Association Notable Children’s Book, as well as its follow-up, Jabari Tries. Gaia Cornwall lives in Connecticut.
