"Once there was a baby, who wouldn't go to sleep..." is a familiar story beginning for many parents. A father holds his baby boy at the window to watch the cars go by. As the snow gently falls, taxis, garbage trucks, snowplows and fire engines make their way through the night, lulling the baby to sleep. Teddy Jam's simple prose and Eric Beddows' panoramic illustrations make this a perfect bedtime story. Canadian author Teddy Jam (also known as Matt Cohen) has written many books for adults and children. Renowned Canadian illustrator Eric Beddows has won the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Award twice.
