    This collection of classic children's poetry, adapted to music by Natalie Merchant, opens the door to a wondrous world filled with witches and fearless girls, blind men and elephants, giants and sailors and dancing bears. Leave Your Sleep features a daring and delightful selection, ranging from the beloved (e.e. cummings, Edward Lear, and Jack Prelutsky) to the undiscovered (the young Nathalia Crane). Natalie Merchant's brilliant musical renderings, selected from her highly praised album, share the stage with Barbara McClintock's richly imagined art to create a memorable reading, looking, and listening experience.

    Gleebooks review:
    Natalie Merchant’s acclaimed double album Leave Your Sleep was a rendering of children’s poetry as songs with her original music. Here she performs nineteen of those songs, accompanying the featured poems illustrated by McClintock. Many of the poems are well-known, by luminaries such as Anonymous, Robert Graves, e. e. cummings and Edward Lear, others less so—yet each resonates in its adapted form. No need to be daunted by poetry; songs are just poems with music?
