The Rabbit, the Dark and the Biscuit Tin
Rabbit doesn’t want to go to bed, and thinks if it doesn’t get dark he won’t have to, so he decides to kidnap ‘the dark’ and trap it in a biscuit tin. Now he can stay up all night long. But ‘the dark’ reminds Rabbit of all the good things that he does. What about all the nocturnal animals? he asks and surely you can’t have a yummy breakfast of toast and honey and fresh orange juice unless you’ve been to bed? But the best thing about ‘the dark’, of course, is reading a really good bedtime story!
If bedtime is a battle, then this hilarious, inventive picture book from international bestseller, Nicola O’Byrne, is exactly what you need.
