Beware of the Storybook Wolves
Every night Herb's mother reads him a story before he goes to sleep. And when it happens to be the story about a big scary wolf, Herb makes sure his mother takes the book out of his bedroom, so there is no chance of the 'storybook wolves' escaping out of the book during the night.
One night, however, his mother forgets to take the book with her and two wolves appear at his bedside, ready to eat Herb unless he can find a way to stop them!
Lauren Child has created a truly original and hilarious story, and her lively and unique collage-style illustrations are a joy. Ideal for reassuring children who are scared of the dark.
