Shhh…someone is TRYING to sleep in this rowdy picture book, winner of the General Mills Spoonful of Stories contest.
The newest winner of the General Mills Spoonfuls of Stories contest is a young boy who’s very tired from his busy day, but can’t seem to find enough peace and quiet to fall asleep. Can I Just Take a Nap? is the winner of the 4th annual Cheerios® New Author Contest. Selected from more than 8,000 entries by a team of editors, teachers, librarians, and General Mills staff, Can I Just Take a Nap? will also appear in a bilingual (English/Spanish) mini-paperback edition in 3 million specially marked boxes of Cheerios.
Ron Rauss is the winner of the 2010 Cheerios New Author Contest. Can I Just Take A Nap? is Ron’s first picture book. The story was inspired by his son Aiden, who like his father enjoys a nice afternoon nap. Ron and his family might be napping right now in Warrenton, VA.
Rob Shepperson was born and raised in a sleepy Southern state. For years, he has been making drawings for grown-ups' newspapers. Illustrating children's books has lured him back into a world where the stories are true-to-life. During waking hours, he lives with his family in Croton-on-Hudson, New York.
