Cuddle up together with this sweet and funny bedtime story. Perfect for tricky bedtimes!

The moon's in the sky and the kingdom's asleep.
The cows are all slumbering. So are the sheep.
The ducks are tucked up in the roots of the willow.
The rabbit is drowsily nibbling his pillow . . .

Night has fallen, and everyone is snuggled up and snoozing. All except Princess Sleepyhead...
She's tried running, jumping, counting and chasing, but it's no use. She just can't get to sleep!

Luckily the Night-Night Bear is on hand to help. He knows that what every little princess needs at bedtime is a story and a goodnight hug.

From a Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning author and a bestselling illustrator!
