The Lovereading4Kids comment

Prize-winning Emily Gravett has hit the jackpot again with a brilliant and original picture book that will delight adults as much as children. Everyone knows that the best bedtime stories can be read again and again and again... But sometimes, patience with even the very best can run out. And what happens then? The surprise ending will delight all! ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Again! by Emily Gravett

It's nearly Cedric the dragon's bedtime -- there's just time for his mum to read him his favourite book. Unfortunately for her, Cedric likes the story so much that he wants to hear it again ...and again ...and again ...with incendiary consequences! A typically clever and quite irresistable book from a star talent.

Reviews

Praise for Emily Gravett:

"One of our most inventive and surprise-full creators of picture books" – Michael Rosen

"She has the intuitive grasp of timing, expression and anticipation which marks out the exceptional from the mediocre" – Sunday Telegraph

'This is yet another delightful book from the hugely talented Gravett, with bags of personality oozing from the dragons .. a clever little story and a witty novelty ending. Good enough to read again and again, in fact.' - Daily Mail

About the Author

Emily Gravett

One of the World Book Day 2014 Authors.

Emily Gravett has a rare talent indeed for creating exceptional books for children. The winner of two Kate Greenaway Awards, her skill and wit are second to none as she pushes the boundaries and wrings maximum fun and detail from every page. Emily first sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves, in 2005, which has been followed by such brilliant modern classics as Meerkat Mail, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me and The Odd Egg and the fabulous Bear and Hare series for younger readers, as well as the beautiful Tidy. Each book is unique and different from the last - and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Emily lives in Brighton with her family.

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Prize-winning illustrator Emily Gravett’s distinctive illustrations are always full of wit bringing the unexpected into stories and injecting them all with delightful humour. There’s magic in Spells as a frog turns himself into a handsome prince – well, almost!, excellent advice for rabbits on how to spot the danger of wolves in Wolves, lots of useful tips on how to be braver than you feel in Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, a thoughtful exploration of how home often turns out to be best despite feelings of wanderlust in Meerkat Mail, a celebration of exuberant movement in Monkey and Me and a fresh and delightful look at Dogs.
