Move over, there’s a new rabbit named Roger in town, and his goal is to get to sleep. He’s the title character from the children’s book “The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep.” The young rabbit wants to get to sleep but can’t, so he and his mother seek help from Uncle Yawn, a wizard, and they meet Sleepy Snail and Heavy-Eyed Owl along the way.
The book claims to help children fall asleep, and its Facebook page states that it uses psychological techniques. The Amazon write-up for the book states: “No need for How-to skills, it’s as easy and simple as reading a normal bedtime story with improved language pattern that will help your child relax and fall asleep.”
The book was self-published in Sweden a few years ago, and an English version came out in April 2014. Sales currently have it topping the best seller list in books in both the Amazon United Kingdom and Amazon United States websites, which has sparked a lot of interest. Alison Forrestal, Amazon UK’s director of books, told the Mirror that it was the first time an independent author reached the No. 1 position in their print books chart.
The website for the author states that Ehrlin has a background in behavioral science. He has written books on leadership, communication and psychology.
