Canʼt You Sleep, Dotty?
By Tim Warnes
Little Tiger Press 2001
Dotty canʼt sleep in her new home. Various visitors try to help, but the real problem is that sheʼs lonely. Awoooooooooo!
I wrote this when there was a new baby in the house, so nobody was getting a lot of sleep.
Years ago I had a new puppy who had a clock in his bed, wrapped up in a blanket so that he wouldnʼt miss the heartbeats of his brothers and sisters. We gave him a cuddly toy too, but he chewed that to bits.
