The wickedly clever Emily Gravett has produced another potential classic with this gorgeous story-within-a-story about an endearing but stubborn little dragon who loves his favourite bedtime story (featuring Cedric the dragon, who never goes to bed) so much, that he insists his increasinglyweary mother reads it to him over and over again, until she is so exhausted she nods off herself, causing a truly fiery tantrum! The attention to detail is simply brilliant – even the ‘spare’ pages before the (repeated) title leaf contribute to the story – and as a result, with an irony deliberately engineered by the author, this is a book that demands to be enjoyed again… and again… and again.
