This book is NOT a bedtime story.
It's scary, strange and rather gory.
Bedtime stories make you sleepy.
This book won't. It's much too CREEPY.
Except it isn't... this book is told by a group of monsters who think they're very scary, but in fact they're not - they're cute and cuddly. They try their hardest to scare you - in a haunted house, creepy wood, ghostly ship and darkest dark, but each time they fail! The problem is, these monsters aren't at all spooky. They're a bit silly, actually. And a bit cuddly. In fact, they share the insecurities and worries of us humans and all they want is a cosy, snoozy good night's sleep.
Despite the title of this book it really is a bedtime story. A brilliant tale that reassures children, makes them laugh and gets them ready for a peaceful night's sleep.
