Praise for Bedtime Stories

Whether as a read-aloud for snuggling up or for the newly independent reader this will be the ideal choice to inspire imagination and a love of stories . . . Be prepared for many cries of ‘read it again!’ from your chosen audience.

With stories first published as early as 1989 (Jesse by Tim Winton), these classics will be treasured across generations and I think the compilation will appeal to grandparents . . . For a cosy, tried and tested formula from Puffin Books, readers will find this a safe buy to gift and share for many favourite ends of the day.

Liz Anelli, Reading Time

A thoroughly delightful collection of bedtime stories by Australian authors and illustrators that is not only a celebration of this country but it showcases of some of our best creators from the place that we call home. More importantly it gives Australia its very own bedtime stories with themes that are sure to become classics as we introduce younger readers and parents to some thoroughly enjoyable, well-written and illustrated tales.
