My three year old asks for this book again and again and it is one of his favourite bedtime stories. He loves knocking on his bed as each animal knocks on the door and he knows certain phrases by heart and says them aloud before I get a chance to read them. It is a classic and well worth the buy.

This has to be my favourite book I chose it because it was exciting because with some cute cuddly characters.It was a good story it had a happy ending and I loved the illustrations.It also was one of the first book I remember my mum reading to me.My Favourite character is the little biack mole because he is not the monster you think he is,he is just a cute cuddly creature."This is'nt a monster"said Percy. "It's a mole!" Percy is the park keeper who lives in a hut in the park,he looks after the animals of the park and their homes.This is a well writen well illustrated book and it makes me feel glad that I have a lovely warm bed on cold winter nights.

A wonderful winters tale from Percy the parkkeeper and his friends. This is a perfect bedtime story with Percy helping his animal friends during "one snowy night". The story is humerous and endearing and my 2 and a half year old daughter loves it. Another success from a brilliant author!

It is winter and it is snowing. All through the evening, Percy gets knocks from various different animals and they all want to share the bed. The problem is the bed is too small for them all. How will all of the animals and Percy get through the night? Find out in this book... I really, really, really like Percy the Park Keeper adventures (and have got four of the books) and would definitely and positively rate this book 8/ 10. I would absolutely strongly recommend it to everyone who likes Percy the Parker as well! Nick Butterworth has done a great job with all of the books - so I look forward to read and review other of his books!

This is a wonderful, cosy, heartwarming story - which is just what a children's book should be. There is only the merest hint of realism (the fox is allowed inside with the rabbits, as long as he promises to behave) and it makes perfect bedtime reading for a chilly night.

Lovely book to read and, for my 3 year old son, listen to. Lots of actions (knocking on doors, snuggling under blankets, budging up etc), bit of a frightener (not too much) with the noise under the shed and a spot of 'who is where?'. Even explains how the fox is allowed in with the other animals.

I'll be looking to get more in the series but we're still into this one.

What can I say about this truly wonderful and magical book that has not already been said. It is wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated and just the right length for a snuggly bedtime story. My son is now 4 years old and still loves to hear the stories about Percy the Park Keeper. We even purchased the DVD (which is truly wonderful too).

I personally love to read this story and have even been known to suggest it to my son for bedtime reading. If you don't already own this book, then don't hesitate to buy it today, you will not regret it.

This was my first experience of a percy the parkkeeper book and my little girl absoulutely loved it. She has now nagged me to buy more percy books! It's a firm bedtime favourite and she particularly likes both the illustrations and the fun pull out poster where they need to identify where certain items of percy's are in the picture.
A really great read and one that your little one will want to read again and again.

We have long been fans of this story and have bought different editions as gifts over the years. This is a nice edition for a gift, it is smaller than some of the previous editions at 6 inches (15.5cm) square but still retains the clarity of the beautiful artwork and is a nice size for little ones to hold. The hardcover is solid and without a dustjacket again making it easier for little hands. The inner pages are good quality paper and the price very reasonable. Handy for bedtime stories on holiday as it would slip easily into a suitcase or even a handbag. If you have not met Percy before this is the best place to start.

We absolutely love this book. The first time I read it to my daughter (then 2) she loved finding out who was at the door but was really scared about what the noise could be. Then, when the mystery was revealed, she loved it. She also loves looking for the objects in the fold out picture at the end of the book. Even after finding all the objects, there is always more to find and talk about. We have read it over and over again and since purchased two more Percy the park keeperbooks.
