As a little boy drifts off to sleep one night, his thoughts set off on an adventure around the world. He dreams of vast oceans where dolphins leap through the waves; icy landscapes where penguins huddle for warmth and wild grasslands where hippos, giraffes and zebras roam free. John Butler captures each scene in beautiful detail, filling every landscape with a wealth of beautifully depicted animals and plants.
John Butler has written and illustrated numerous top-selling books for children, all of which have featured the environment or animals in their natural habitats. His other books include 'Can You Cuddle Like a Koala?', 'While You Were Sleeping', 'Hush Little Ones', and 'Pi-Shu the Little Panda', and collaborated with author Sally Grindley on 'Polar Star', 'Little Tang' and 'Little Elephant Thunderfoot'.
'Little Elephant Thunderfoot' was shortlisted for the picture book categories of both the Sheffield Children's Book Award 1997 and The Federation of Children's Book Groups Awards 1997.
John lives in Kent with his wife.
