Ehrlin’s first book, The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep was published last year – firstly, as self-published book through Amazon’s CreateSpace. Penguin Random House bought the publishing rights to the title when it reached number two in the UK’s book chart.
The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep, illustrated by Sydney Hanson, tells the story of a character called Ellen the Elephant journeying through a magical forest that leads to sleep. Along the way, she meets different characters and has soothing experiences aimed at helping children relax and doze off.
The book will be published in the UK on 6 October and in the US on 4 October.
Ehrlin’s first book has been translated into 43 languages and sold in 44 countries world-wide. International sales currently exceed 1.6 million copies.
