Stories of the Night
A modern fairytale bedtime book set in the magical illustrated world of Astrid Lindgren Award recipient Kitty Crowther
Translated by Julia Marshall
“Tell me three good night stories, please, please,” says Little Bear.
“Three!?” says her mother.
“Yes—I gave you three good night kisses!”
First, Little Bear hears the story of the nightwatch, who lives in the woods and makes sure all the animals go to bed. Gong! Gong! But who tells the nightwatch when it’s bedtime? The second story is about the brave girl Zora who seeks the forest’s most delicious blackberries. In the third we meet Bo, the little man with the big overcoat, who finds it hard to sleep.
Finally, Little Bear falls asleep, and there in bed beside her are her new storybook friends.
