Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2013 Prize-winning Emily Gravett has hit the jackpot again with a brilliant and original picture book that will delight adults as much as children. Everyone knows that the best bedtime stories can be read again and again and again... But sometimes, patience with even the very best can run out. And what happens then? The surprise ending will delight all!
It's nearly Cedric the dragon's bedtime -- there's just time for his mum to read him his favourite book. Unfortunately for her, Cedric likes the story so much that he wants to hear it again ...and again ...and again ...with incendiary consequences! A typically clever and irresistible book from a star talent.
