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.

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.
