TWELVE KINDS OF ICELEAVE YOUR SLEEP
Frances Foster Books
Farrar, Straus, & Giroux 2012
Natalie Merchant, author
Barbara McClintock, illustrator

This collection of classic children's poetry, adapted to music by Natalie Merchant, opens the door to a wondrous world filled with witches and fearless girls, blind men and elephants, giants and sailors and dancing bears. Leave Your Sleep features a daring and delightful selection, ranging from the beloved (e.e. cummings, Edward Lear, and Jack Prelutsky ) to the undiscovered ( the young Natalia Crane ). Natalie Merchant's brilliant musical renderings, selected from her highly praised album, share the stage with Barbara McClintock's richly imagined art to create a memorable reading, looking, and listening experience.
