Rank #1: The Last Book Before Bedtime

Podcast cover
Read more
Everyone knows that the very last story before bed is the best story of all. But the problem is, everyone wants to be in that very last story! A familiar fairy tale is turned topsy-turvy when Cinderella hijacks the story of The Three Little Pigs, then Little Red Riding Hood jumps in, adamant that her story is better because it’s full of danger. And then the Big Bad Wolf turns up too! But disaster strikes! Uh-oh! What will they do? The reader is still awake and needs a story! The characters make up their own story, of course, and one with enough funniness, romance, danger AND cake (obviously) to keep everyone happy. The Stories Aloud audio edition of The Last Book Before Bedtime is illustrated by Nicola O'Byrne, and published by Nosy Crow.

It is only when Pip gives Posy his own, very favourite, pig toy that Posy is comforted and that the friends can get a good night’s sleep, at last. The Stories Aloud audio edition of Pip and Posy: The Bedtime Frog is illustrated by Axel Scheffler and published by Nosy Crow.
