This book tells the story of a working "day" in the life of the Sandman. His "day" starts at 7:00 p.m. He prepares his trip with his owl and travels with his donkey. From 7:00 p.m. on he sprinkles sand into people's eyes so that they go to sleep!

He travels around the world from San Francisco to New York, going as far as Moscow and back, taking care that both children and grown ups go to sleep.

He visits little children first, then teenagers and adults. He even helps animals fall asleep.

So come and travel with the Sandman sharing his daily experiences.
