Synopsis

When the World Is Ready for Bed by Gillian Shields

A family of rabbits go through their end-of-day routine, from having their tea to brushing their teeth, sharing a story and being tucked up in bed, until they peek out of the window and see something that's a change from their usual routine in this classic picture book.With delectable art and warm, lyrical text, this is a thoroughly modern picture book with strong echoes of books such as The Velveteen Rabbit and the works of Beatrix Potter.

Reviews

Charm and simplicity . . . this stands out among the ranks of going-to-bed books * The Bookseller * [A] bedtime story with masses of charm * Nursery Industry * A wonderful tale with masses of charm . . . This book is perfect for quieting the littlest listeners * Aldershot News and Mail * What better way to make your little darling nod off than to read a lilting story about sleepy-time rituals while she gazes at the soft, warm pictures? * Junior *

About the Author

Gillian Shields

Gillian Shields was born and brought up in Yorkshire. As she grew up, she had two passions; books and theatre. Gillian’s love of books led her to read English at St Catharine's College, Cambridge. After university she studied acting in London, and then worked in a drama school for several years, becoming Vice-Principal.

Having children gave Gillian an excuse to carry on reading children’s books, as well as motivation to write them. She has a young son and a grown-up daughter, and is married to Brian, who works for the International Herald Tribune.
