This Book Is Not A Bed Time Story



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.

The 411:

My preschool class enjoyed this and it was so fun to read out loud. They are two and there was a few times I wondered is this too much. Nope they different voices I used for each character made them laugh even if they didn’t always know what I was talking about. Not many two year olds know tarragon but they enjoyed it so Did I! 

They asked for it 5 times already this week and I do not mind reading this one over and over.
