This Book is Not a Bedtime Story
Illustrated by Rob Starling
Renowned author Eoin McLaughlin and award-nominated illustrator Rob Starling join forces to create a hilarious, not-so-spooky tale
This book is NOT a bedtime story.
It’s scary, strange and rather gory.
Bedtime stories make you sleepy.
This book won’t. It’s much too CREEPY.
Except it isn’t… this book is told by a group of monsters who think they’re very scary, but in fact they’re not – they’re cute and cuddly. They try their hardest to scare you – in a haunted house, creepy wood, ghostly ship and darkest dark, but each time they fail! The problem is, these monsters aren’t at all spooky. They’re a bit silly, actually. And a bit cuddly. In fact, they share the insecurities and worries of us humans and all they want is a cosy, snoozy good night’s sleep.
Despite the title of this book it really is a bedtime story. A brilliant tale that reassures children, makes them laugh and gets them ready for a peaceful night’s sleep.
'Starling’s block colour illustration adds to the frivolous tone in a tale where familiar bedtime fears are easily defused with good natured humour.'
'You need to go grab a copy of this book… it’s so so good!'
