The Prince's Bedtime by Joanne Oppenheim


The Prince's Bedtime by Joanne Oppenheim

The cook brings biscuits, the maid brings hot milk and the physician brings medicine, but the young Prince will not sleep. A mysterious woman at the palace gate holds the key to the prince's slumber...This is a bedtime story! It is a humorous account of familiar bedtime rituals that will delight both children and parents.


'Stunning artwork complements some clever yet simply written text in the form of rhyming couplets. Getting young children to bed can often be a struggle but this delightful tale will bring a broad smile to the face of both parent and child as they share the experience of reading it.'
