Welcome to Sleeping Cat Press

Sleeping Cat Press is an imprint of Sleeping Cat Books. We offer a series of bilingual books and a series of anthologies in our online store.

All over the world, foreign language teachers use literature and poetry to help their students learn sentence structure and to increase their vocabulary in the new language. At Sleeping Cat Books, we’ve taken this concept a step further and have created a series of bilingual books that include the English version of the text on the left-hand page and the foreign language version on the facing page. These books have been carefully designed so that the corresponding paragraphs of text or lines of poetry directly correspond across the spine of the book.

The benefit of a bilingual text is that if you encounter a word you don’t know, you don’t have to lose your place and reach for a dictionary. Simply glance across to the corresponding English for the translation, then continue reading, which provides for a smoother reading experience.
