“Bed time,” says the Mother. “No,” says the baby. In his toy car the baby speeds away to a world of make-believe. He may only be able to go a few yards, but in his head he’s on the road looking for someone to play with. But no one wants to play at this time of night – not even the moon. Ideal for reading aloud right before the lights go out.

LOST! HAVE YOU SEEN THIS BRAVE AND ADVENTUROUS RABBIT?

Tatty-ratty is lost. Molly and Mum can’t find him. He was last seen on a green and red bus, but he could be anywhere now. Maybe he’s driving a train. Or eating porridge with the three bears. One thing is for sure, nobody will get much sleep until he comes home.

William knows there’s a great big bear living under the Stairs.
