The Animals' Bedtime Storybook
By: Wendy Cooling
Quality: Like New
Genre: Children Books, Animals, Short story
Description: To keep the animals happy on the Ark, Noah asks them to take turns telling a story every night. Noah introduces the stories and sometimes one or two of the audience chip in and get rather noisy as the mongoose tells how he defeated the mighty King Cobra, the two ocelots squabble with each other, the porcupine tells how he got his spikes and the wolf tells the story of the three little pigs as it really happened. The forty newly-commissioned stories are written down by eight popular children's writers - Lucy Coats, Alan Durant, Vivian French, Adele Geras, Michael Lawrence, Jenny Nimmo, Jeremy Strong and Jean Ure. They are funny, quirky, mysterious and magical - just right to read aloud and share with young children. Penny Dann's colourful pictures on every page are packed with things to look at, and there is added fun for children identifying the animals and looking for two stowaway mice.
