Sands  Hetherington & Son

Pictured above is author Sands Hetherington and his now grown-up son, John, in Brussels. The delightful world of Night Buddies first began as a bedtime tradition of storytelling between father and son. Sands and  7-year-old John had always done bedtime stories, but one night John presented his dad with a red crocodile named Crosley that he’d invented for an after-lights-out companion. They started making up John and Crosley episodes, and Crosley got to be a real member of the family. From those night time stories, Sands was able to craft an award-winning book series that combined John’s imagination with Sands’ love of travel and culture.

Sands named the curly-headed hero in the Night Buddies Book Series in honor of his son.
