A Recipe for Bedtime

Written by Peter Bently

Illustrated by Sarah Massini

A Recipe for Bedtime Synopsis

From the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, comes a classic baby bedtime book with a perfect lullaby ending. Baby, baby soft and sweet, almost good enough to eat! It's night-night time so come with me, and hear my bedtime recipe. An utterly charming tale. No bedtime collection should be without it. With its tender, gently soporific rhyming text and pictures so beautifully in tune, I can imagine this becoming a bedtime favourite with many a toddler. - Red Reading Hub

A Recipe for Bedtime Press Reviews

Bently's gentle nod to the not always easy aspects of bedtime, while still appealing to a very young listener, makes this a standout among others of its ilk. The lulling rhythm of the rhyme scheme is so memorable that the words will likely be recited and woven into family routines. * School Library Journal * A treat of a bedtime book * Kirkus Reviews * A brilliant bedtime story about the bedtime routine! The perfect bedtime story...gentle and sweet * The Guardian * A beautiful book... warm, gentle and soothing. * The Scotsman * The perfect bedtime story... gentle and sweet. * GuardianWitness * With its tender, gently soporific rhyming text and pictures so beautifully in tune, I can imagine this becoming a bedtime favourite with many a toddler. * Red Reading Hub *
