Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brave King Jack and his faithful knights, Sir Zack and baby Casper, spend all day fighting fierce dragons and terrible beasts in their homemade fort. But night is falling, bedtime is looming, and playtime is nearly over. When Sir Zack and Caspar are taken inside for bed, King Jack - alone on his throne - finds himself feeling a bit less brave . . . especially when he hears a thing approaching, a thing with four legs.

A fantasy adventure and comforting bedtime tale in one. With Helen Oxenbury's spare, expressive illustrations, this classic in the making is perfect for imaginative preschoolers everywhere, and certainly for fans of There's a Nightmare in my Closet and Where the Wild Things Are.

Synopsis:

A swashbuckling story of pesky pirates—and one very picky parrot

Polly Parrot is looking for a pirate. Not just any pirate—one that will make the perfect pet. But finding the perfect pet pirate isn't easy. This picky parrot might just end up with more pirate than she expected. This is a new comedy caper from the Roald Dahl Funny Prize winning author Peter Bently.

Synopsis:

A must-have board book for all babies.

Good night, Gorilla.

Good night, Elephant.

It's bedtime at the zoo, and all the animals are going to sleep. Or are they? Who's that short, furry guy with the key in his hand and the mischievous grin?

Good night, Giraffe.

Good night, Hyena.

Sneak along behind the zookeeper's back, and see who gets the last laugh in this riotous good-night romp.
