Flying Rabbits, Singing Squirrels and Other Bedtime Stories Summary

Flying Rabbits, Singing Squirrels and Other Bedtime Stories by Axel Scheffler

Molly loves to listen to her dad's bedtime stories. Once upon a time, he says, everyone was green, squirrels sang in choirs, tiny people lived in Aunt Elsie's pot plant and of course, rabbits could fly . . . but can all this really be true? Molly thinks her dad's just being silly as usual, but no-one's bedtime stories are as good as his. So cuddle up on the sofa and pick one of these fourteen fantastically funny stories to read together before bed. Which one will be your favourite?

Melanie von Bismarck's brilliant collection of short stories is cleverly translated from the German by David Henry Wilson, author of the Jeremy James series, and is brought to life by the warm, witty and richly detailed pictures by Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo.

With a jacket, extra-thick paper, and a special ribbon to mark your place in the book, Flying Rabbits, Singing Squirrels and Other Bedtime Stories makes a great present - truly a gift book to treasure.
