Herring Sleeps Over

Anna Ehring, illustrated by Moa Graaf

In the fourth book by Anna Ehring, illustrated by Moa Graaf, Herring and his friend Hedda has a brilliant idea: Herring will sleep over at Hedda’s place who is his neighbour now and lives across the cows’ pasture! It’s the best idea ever! Right?

When Hedda has fallen asleep and Herring lies listening to the strange and unfamiliar sounds he can hear in the house, his room at home feels really far away. But like Herring’s mom explained when he was packing for the sleepover: “It is a bit scary to sleep over at someone else’s house for the first time. But if you don’t try it then, the second won’t ever come and that is not at all as scary as the first.”

This is the fourth book in Anna Ehring’s series about feelings, thoughts – big and small – and making friends. Anna Ehring’s storytelling is spot-on and humorous, displaying a unique understanding for the inner life of a six-year-old. Moa Graaf’s timeless illustrations accompany the text thoughtfully and open up an immersive reading experience for both children and their parents.
