Paul has no one to play with. The sandpit is empty. Or is it?


As he digs and pats the sand, a shape appears: an elephant. Curling up under the elephant's warm, sandy trunk, Paul drifts off to sleep. But then something amazing happens. The sand elephant stands up, and lifts Paul onto its back!


The sand elephant takes Paul to a wonderful land where incredible sand animals and their children are laughing and playing together. But what will happen when the wind starts to blow and the rain starts to fall?


In this delightful celebration of the power of childhood imagination, Rinna Herman's story combines with pictures full of vibrancy and charm by acclaimed illustrator Sanne Dufft. This gentle story reassures children that friends from our imagination stay with us forever, so we need never feel alone.
Praise for Sanne Dufft's Magnus and the Night Lion:


 


'A comforting, enabling, picture-perfect bedtime read.' -- Kirkus Reviews


'[A] beautiful book with wonderful illustrations….I hope to read this story over and over.' -- Booktime


“[T]his picture book tells a story with universal appeal, particularly for children with night fears. The text reads aloud well, while the handsome watercolor artwork transforms elements of Magnus's daytime experiences within the dream sequences... A reassuring picture book.' -- Booklist


'Creative illustrations use light and shadow to explore tumultuous emotions as the lion chases fears away alongside Magnus... ' -- Foreword Reviews


'The soothing repetition of the text's beginning and end and the charming warmth of Dufft's watercolour and pencil illustrations should make this a storytime staple within the home.' -- CM Magazine
Rinna Hermann's life has taken her from Berlin to Belfast, London to Sydney and back to Berlin -- where she now lives with her husband and children and works as a writer and teacher.
