Good Night: A Pop-Up Lullaby
Publisher: Walker Books
A child protests that they cannot go to bed because there are bears under the stairs, a boa in the bathroom, a bison in the basin and an owl under the towel! Worse, there’s a skunk on the bunk that simply won’t move, and an armadillo in the pillow. Not exactly conducive to a good night’s sleep! Yet, surprisingly, the unusual animals are actually quite keen on getting some shut-eye.
This joyously varied big hardback pop-up picture book uses rhyme to weave a raft of unusual animals into the bedtime routine, reminding us that maybe snuggling down will actually be quite fun.
