The Faber Book of Bedtime Stories

Illustrated by Sarah McIntyre. Various authors

Illustrated by one of our wonderful patrons Sarah McIntyre, this new collection of 17 stories for bedtime (or anytime!) is a treasure trove of short stories that we think children will love to read!

Notable authors such as Emma Carroll, Kieran Larwood and Ayesha Braganza amongst others have contributed stories which serve both to entertain as well as encourage discussion about themes such as bravery, inclusivity and kindness. Whether it is a retelling of Cinderella set in a classroom, a holiday safari at home or the delicious descriptions of food to share across a community; this blend of tales with a sprinkling of magic, history and humour create an anthology that would fit well in any KS2 classroom.

The familiar bold and colourful illustrations we so love are integral to the warmth and humour of each story. This is a gorgeous story collection!
