Synopsis

Tell Me A Story Before I Go To Bed by Sam McBratney

A reassuring bedtime story from the author of the phenomenally bestselling picture book, 'Guess How Much I Love You'. Anna-Sophia's dad says he will tell her a story when they go up the wooden hill. But Anna-Sophia isn't sure where to find the wooden hill, so Dad gives her some clues...It isn't far away, it has lots of creaky steps, and he carries her up it every night. Can Anna-Sophia solve the riddle before it's time for bed?

Reviews

Praise for 'Up the Wooden Hill': 'Unashamedly for little girls and their dads... A cosy, safe story for bedtimes.

'I'm Sorry': As with his hugely popular tale Guess How Much I Love You , Sam McBratney strikes just the right note here depicting the highs and lows of childhood friendships. Every parent will recognise that special relationship, so full of innocence and trust, and know just how it is when small arguments cause great anxiety. With gentle illustrations to match the text, this is a classic picture book.'

'I'm Not Your Friend': 'A warm, richly-illustrated story of a mother's steadfast love.'

About the Author

Sam McBratney

As a child

In his own words, Sam McBratney spent his postwar childhood “in short trousers and Fair Isle jumpers.” He remembers studying for his 11-plus exam, before going to grammar school, and then on to study History and Political Science at Trinity College in Dublin.

As an adult

Sam became a teacher and taught at a further education college, a grammar school and a primary school. He took early retirement from the teaching profession to concentrate on his career as a writer. Sam is married with three grown-up children and a teenage tortoise, and lives in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

As an artist

Sam has won many awards for his children’s books and is best known as the author of the multi-million selling Guess How Much I Love You which was shortlisted for the 1994 Kurt Maschler Award, and is now one of the world’s best-selling picture books. In 2004, Sam reunited with Guess How Much I Love You illustrator Anita Jeram to produce the follow-up, You’re All My Favourites, and the two of them collaborated again in 2007 to produce a series of brand-new storybooks featuring the Nutbrown Hares: Guess How Much I Love You in the Spring followed by Summer, Autumn and Winter and brought together in Guess How Much I Love You All Year Round.
