A cheeky story about night-time fears from award-winning Australian singer and songwriter Josh Pyke.
Leonard doesn't like bedtime, especially when there's a five-nosed, seven-tailed, eleven-handed, scaly-waily monster hiding in the corner of his bedroom. It seems like Leonard will never sleep again ... until he discovers a mysterious book called How to Frighten Monsters.
“This book is laugh-out-loud funny ... the resolution in this story is clever, with unexpected hilarious details, and wholly satisfying. Lights Out, Leonard is highly recommended for young readers, especially anyone afraid of the dark.”
Kids' Book Review
“This is a quirky book with a funny twist, and it’s always entertaining to see if the kids catch on to what the parents are really up to! You’ll be reading and re-reading this one . . .”
“This is an amusing, reassuring book with a universal theme and is a good addition to the range of bedtime books for children aged 3–6.”
