This is Not A Bedtime Story by Will Mabbitt
Sophie doesn't want a story time filled with cute kittens and birthday parties, she wants rocket-launching helicopters and a giant robot dinosaur!
's Dad obliges and starts to read a story about Pink Kitten, a cute pink kitten. Sophie isn't impressed. Taking it upon herself to add a to the story, Pink Kitten soon becomes a light sabre wielding kitten. A car driving, helicopter flying, robot dinosaur fighting kitten! This is more like it. The short story Sophie's Dad had intended on has become a completely different story. Sophie and Dad are now inside the story with Pink Kitten and a real life Lion! Following one epic adventure Sophie is finally ready for bed. Fighting robot dinosaurs is tiring work after all. Taylor was in awe as we animatedly read the book aloud and started to point at the pictures letting out a cute 'oooh'
't aimed at one gender. It shows that Girls don't always want to hear stories about pink kittens and fluffy clouds, they love action and adventure just as much as boys. Encouraging boys and girls to use their imagination and be spontaneous! Accompanied by a series of beautiful and funny illustrations, which I loved the unique style of, we'll certainly be looking to read more picture books from Will Mabbitt and Fred Blunt. This is NOT a Bedtime Story is a fast paced tale of imagination and adventure. Not the sort of book you might want to wind down with before bed but the title did warn you!
