Bernard's got a problem. He's found a monster in the back garden but his mum and dad are just too busy to notice. So Bernard tries to befriend the monster... and that doesn't go quite to plan. Loved by children, monsters and adults for thirty five years, David McKee's iconic picture book is celebrated in this special anniversary paperback that includes embossing and a free downloadable audiobook.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Well-loved classic... Little ones will love (and recognise all too soon!) the oft-repeated 'Not now, Bernard', leaving older children and their parents to appreciate the black humour and static, expressive illustrations" * Guardian, The Best New Children's Books supplement *
"Very funny, written very dryly and is a sobering lesson to all us busy parents who sometimes get distracted!" * Lucy Owen, Western Mail Cardiff *
"Opened my eyes to what was possible with children's writing. Helped me realise that nothing needs to be taboo - its all in how you treat the material." * Sophie Mckenzie, Lovereading Guest Editor *
"An Andersen classic. Hilarious cautionary tale." * Michael Rosen, Lovereading Guest Editor *
"This is a true classic!" * The Good Book Guide *

“Absolute classic children's book”

This was my favourite book when I was a child, and now I buy it for all my friend's children! It's dark in the tradition of all the best fairy tales but it's too humorous to be scary, with a meaningful... More

“Oldie but goldie”

Even though its aesthetic is very much of its era (sort of yellow-submarine-ish and a teeny bit psychedelic), it still looks appealing and modern. The story is simple: kid gets eaten by monster, parents don't... More
