It’s bedtime for Humphrey and his big sister Lottie. Humphrey enjoys his supper, taking a bath and having a story read to him, but Lottie is so busy and grown-up that she doesn’t have time to get ready for bed. It doesn’t take long for things to go wrong for Lottie, who gets very hot and cross.
Sally Hunter’s delicious Humphrey made his first appearance as a character on a range of greetings cards: rarely has something that started life in such a way transformed itself so perfectly to a children’s book character.
Humphrey–soft, cuddly and oh so sweet–is totally adorable, and in Humphrey’s Bedtime he turns the charm up to top level in a bedtime story that is lovely.
Pastel illustrations combine with simple, heart-warming text that cannot possibly fail to tempt even the most reluctant tot to slumber.
A great gift for any child, Humphrey’s Bedtime is chocolate-box cute with out the sickly aftertaste.–Susan Harrison
