Quite a sad little book
on 6 October 2006
Lovely illustrations and my 3 year-old son enjoys the story, but it is really quite sad. On every page the little boy, Bernard, is being told by one of his parents "not now", to the point where they don't notice that he's been replaced by a monster whilst eating his dinner or going to bed.
This story does get read at bedtime once or twice a onth in our house but I can't say that I like it at all.
