Once Upon a Bedtime

Publisher: Hodder

Review

Once upon a bedtime, a long yawwwn floated down Sleepy Street. Rabbit is very tired indeed, and it’s time to go to bed. But Ellie the Elephant reminds Rabbit that she needs a bath, and Monkey and Bird get her singing the Pyjama Lullaby. After they’ve all brushed their teeth with Crocodile and remembered their cuddlies, it’s time to cosy up for storytime. But there’s a funny noise coming from under the bed! Is there someone who hasn’t got a cuddly? What can be done?

David Melling, author and illustrator of the Hugless Douglas books, has created another delightful picture book full of sweet animal characters that children will love instantly.

Parents and carers will know that you can never underestimate the importance of a cuddly at bedtime, and bedtime can be derailed if that cuddly somehow goes missing! Thankfully, it’s a happy ending for all the animals, which will (hopefully) ensure your little one follows them into the land of nod.
