      Forgetful sisters Siba and Saba are always losing something. Sandals, slippers, sweaters – you name it, they lose it. When the two sisters fall asleep each night, they dream about the things they have lost that day. Until, one night, their dreams begin to reveal something entirely unexpected…

      Full of fun, family and adventure

      This book has a wonderful mix of fun, humour, family, heritage and heart. It has a lovely message, told in an authentic and heart-warming way, showcasing Ugandan heritage. I love that the two sisters learn to dream big and look to the future, not the past.

      What a delight of a book! It was so lovely to find this story- taking a positive spin on losing things which can be so difficult for small children. Also wonderful that it is a story of two Ugandan girls- like my daughter. I have already bought this book as a gift for three friends!

      An Alliterative Symphony

      Great writing and gentle illustrations. The alliterative symphony of Sleep Well Siba & Saba is one of our favourites from powerhouse Lantana.

      We love this book so much. The illustrations are so beautiful, and when we read it, it’s almost like we’re in a cradle swaying softly into a dream.

      I like Siba and Saba. It’s interesting how they kept losing things and had a dream about something they really wanted and found it when they woke up!
