Goodnight Already!

A hilarious bedtime story from debut children’s book author Jory John, and Benji Davies, illustrator of Storm Whale.

Meet Bear. He’s exhausted. All he wants is to go to sleep. Meet Duck, Bear’s persistent next-door neighbour. All he wants is to hang out… with Bear.

How will Bear ever fall asleep!

Our Review Panel says...

Bear is utterly exhausted and is looking to get a good night’s sleep but his neighbour Duck has other ideas. This hilarious story, illustrated by Benji Davies who is the master of drawing an increasingly knackered bear, has me giggling every time I’ve returned to it. As it turns out, it also happens to be a true-to-life reimagining of my son’s toddler years where I am played by Bear and he is played by Duck.
