That ever re-occurring phrase ‘I don’t want to go to bed’ is brilliantly resolved here through storytelling and it doesn’t take long for Jack to decide he likes to go to bed after all!! Green Bananas make reading fun.

Synopsis

Jack's Bed by Lynne Rickards

Jack doesn't want to go to bed. There are monsters in his bedroom and it's much safer to end up in Mummy and Daddy's bed instead. However, Mum has a plan - and soon Jack is guarded by his very own leopard. And then, they have the most wonderful imaginative adventures. This book stars a boy with a very vivid imagination.

About the Author

Lynne Rickards

Lynne Rickards was born in Ottawa, Canada but now lives in Glasgow's West End with her family. She first started as an illustrator in her twenties but then decided to go back to University to study French. It wasn't until her forties that she discovered how much she liked writing.

Lynne's children are her main inspiration alongside her editor and agent. Her son is the model for Jack in 'Jack's Bed' because he hates going to bed but loves jumping on it! Lynne is particularly fond also of Jack's spotty leopard with gleaming eyes.

She describes herself as warm, open and fun!

To relax Lynne enjoys reading, making plasticine creatures with her daughter and snuggling with her son to watch Pingu.
