Stories of the Night
“Tell me three good night stories, please, please, please,” says Little Bear.
“Three!?” says her mother.
“Yes—I said please three times!”
First, Little Bear hears the story of the Night Guardian, who lives in the woods and makes sure all animals go to bed. But who tells the Night Guardian when it’s bedtime? The second story is about the brave girl Zhara who seeks the forest’s most delicious blackberries. In the third we meet Bo, the little man with the big overcoat, who finds it hard to sleep. Finally, Little Bear falls asleep, and there in bed beside her are her new storybook friends.
Stories of the Night is a modern fairy-tale storybook set in the magical illustrations of Kitty Crowther.
