STORY TIME

Once upon a time there was a BIG BLOCKAGE. Due to a nasty virus all over the world, everything ground to a halt. Stories, big ideas and amazing imaginations never stopped, of course – but getting them into books, then sent around the world took FOREVER. Things were well and truly STUCK. Then, one day in February 2022, things began to unclog, unblock and WHOOOOOSH… before long things were on the move once more. Brand new children’s books began to appear on dusty, empty shelves. And the exciting world of shiny new books lived happily ever after. Phew!

Yes, all being well, lots of fun bedtime animal stories will be whizzing into bookshops at the end of the month – to bring a dollop of cheer to storytime before bed (or any other time, for that matter).

Folk tales from around the world are originally told and illustrated to bring bedtime a touch of style. Sweet dreams guaranteed (almost).

There’s nothing like a tale from deep among the trees to send you to sleep with a cheery chuckle, a satisfied sigh or a point to ponder…

Enjoy these collections of age-old stories getting a sparkly new twist…

While on the subject of bedtime stories to send you to sleep with a smile (or just a whiff of the weird and wonderful), another ‘story a night through a whole month’ (lots of windows to open on the cover to show each night’s tale) will be coming later. As a sort of Alice in Wonderland meets The Addams Family, The Monster Ball is packed with wacky characters preparing for the BIG NIGHT at the end of the month at spooky Graveside Manor – and yes, YOU are invited! More about this crazy caper coming soon, so watch this space…

Plenty of other STORYTIME books should be coming soon as the world unlocks and unblocks through 2022. There’ll always be SPACE for more books, as you can find out HERE with a quick quiz…    Happy READING, LISTENING & SLEEPING!
