Synopsis

Little Howard's Unpleasant Lullaby by Howard Read

The first picture book from the newest star in children's television Every child loves a lullaby. Every parent loves to get their children off to sleep so that they can have the rest of the evening to themselves. In this hilarious picture book Perrier-nominated comedian Howard Read turns the tables on grown-ups with a twisted tale that will have kids wetting themselves, quite possibly literally. Big Howard tries to get Little Howard to sleep with a beautiful song, but the song soon turns into a series of spooky stories and nightmare-inducing tales of zombies, carpet sharks and monsters under the bed. But Little Howard has the last laugh with a wonderful final scene. This silly, irreverent and slightly bonkers story book is a welcome alternative to the safe and snugly stories kids normally have read to them at night. Parents will love it, but the children will love it even more. Little Howard's Unpleasant Lullaby was originally published as a limited edition hardback which has been selling out at Howard's live shows.
