Stories of the Night - Kitty Crowther


A modern fairytale bedtime book set in the magical illustrated world of Astrid Lindgren Award recipient Kitty Crowther

“Tell me three goodnight stories, please, please, please,” says Little Bear. “Three!” says her mother. “Yes, I said please three time!” First, Little Bear hears the story of the Night Guardian, who lives in the woods and makes sure all the animals go to bed. But who tells the Night Guardian when it’s bedtime? The second story is about the brave girl Zhora, who seeks the forest’s most delicious blackberries. In the third we meet Bo, the little man with the big overcoat, who finds it hard to sleep. Finally, Little Bear falls asleep, and there in bed beside her are her new storybook friends.
