Betty Goes Bananas in her Pyjamas

Publisher: Oxford

Review

As night draws in and the stars come out, it's time for Betty to go to bed but suddenly anything and everything seems more appealing than going to sleep!

Despite obvious signs of tiredness, Betty wants to play all her instruments, paint lots of pictures and test every single one of her toys. Only the offer of a bedtime story can tempt her into bed but even then it has to be read over and over and over again before she finally drops off …. Or does she?

Betty, the baby gorilla, is a delightfully wilful and impulsive character and her reluctance to surrender to sleep will strike a very familiar chord with many young children and their carers.
