‘Sleeping is a modern superpower. Stories are old magic.’

Whether you find yourself struggling to fall asleep, awake in the middle of the night or simply feeling anxious, the calming bedtime stories in Nothing Much Happens will help ease your mind and lull you into peaceful slumber.

As the unnamed, gender-neutral narrators recount their days they evoke the distinct comforts offered by each of the four seasons and gently lead their reader towards sleep. With evocative illustrations throughout, Nothing Much Happens is the ideal accompaniment to your bedtime routine.

‘A charming collection of short almost-stories intended as an antidote to insomnia and restlessness. […] Nicolai accomplishes what no other author would want to hear: these stories can put people to sleep.’ Publishers Weekly
