Natalie Merchant and Barbara McClintock: Leave Your Sleep
Natalie Merchant has teamed up with award-winning children's book illustrator Barbara McClintock for a full-color picture book based on Leave Your Sleep, Merchant's album of classic children's poetry adapted to music. Leave Your Sleep opens the door to a wondrous world filled with witches and fearless girls, blind men and elephants, giants and sailors and dancing bears, featuring a selection ranging from the beloved (e.e. cummings, Edward Lear, and Jack Prelutsky) to the undiscovered (the young Nathalia Crane). Merchant's musical renderings, selected from her highly praised album, share the stage with McClintock's richly imagined art to create a memorable reading, looking, and listening experience.
