Wake, Sleepy One



Written in lyrical prose with beautifully detailed illustrations, Wake, Sleepy One follows the California poppy's incredible journey, from seed, to flower, to the rare super bloom.

"West Margin rises and shines with Wake, Sleepy One by debut author Lisa Kerr, illus. by Lisa Powell Braun, providing a nonfiction look at the California wildflower super bloom that occurs every spring."

--Publishers Weekly, Spring 2022 Children's Sneak Previews

In the spring, when the desert receives the perfect amount of rain and sunshine, wildflowers can appear in a brilliant orange blaze across the land. This is the California poppy's super bloom, an impressive natural phenomenon that occurs, without warning, only once every ten years.

Learn about the delicate golden poppy's life cycle as it slowly wakes from seed, and about its habitat in the Mojave Desert. As the flower takes root and begins to unfold its petals, the rest of the desert inhabitants are already going about their way, with coyotes hunting and rattlesnakes slithering. Sidebars throughout the story provide interesting background history and science details, and at the back of the book is a glossary of the plant parts of the poppy, plus more information on super blooms and where to find them.

A gentle awakening that crescendos into a stunning display, Wake, Sleepy One captures the quiet strength of the poppy and its breathtaking wonder as it transforms into a super bloom.
