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
