This Book is Not a Bedtime Story Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Rob Starling

Paperback / softback


This book is NOT a bedtime story. It's scary, strange and rather gory. Bedtime stories make you sleepy. This book won't. It's much too CREEPY. Except it isn't... this book is told by a group of monsters who think they're very scary, but in fact they're not - they're cute and cuddly.

They try their hardest to scare you - in a haunted house, creepy wood, ghostly ship and darkest dark, but each time they fail!

The problem is, these monsters aren't at all spooky.

They're a bit silly, actually. And a bit cuddly. In fact, they share the insecurities and worries of us humans and all they want is a cosy, snoozy good night's sleep. Despite the title of this book it really is a bedtime story.

A brilliant tale that reassures children, makes them laugh and gets them ready for a peaceful night's sleep.
