Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep by Ludwig Bemelmans (1943)


Ludwig Bemelmans' first novel introduces Leonidas Erosa, a wealthy South American general living in Biarritz with his group of companions. Among them is an exceptional cook, a caretaker for his dogs, a fantastic secretary, a mistress, and a loyal English governess named Miss Graves. As war looms, this lively group embarks on a journey to America, leading to exciting adventures in Casablanca, New York, and ultimately, their old hacienda in Ecuador. Their story unfolds as a tale of life, love, death, and new beginnings.
