This popular title is the second title in the relaunch of the immensely popular Storyteller series in a newly illustrated portrait format. Bob Hartman's retellings of forty warm and reassuring bedtime stories, taken from around the world and retold especially for reading aloud, are combined with Krisztina Kallai Nagy's colorful illustrations, which give a freshness to the text. This new edition is enhanced by useful storytelling tips to help with reading the stories aloud.
"As the author says in the introduction: 'Bedtime stories need to leave the listener with that safe, warm, happily-ever-after feeling.' And thats what this collection does, time and time again." --Manchester Evening News
