About the Author

Helen Oxenbury has charmed generations of children with her award-winning illustrations. She has won the Kate Greenaway medal and the Nestle Smarties Prize and her numerous books include We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. She lives in London with her husband, the author and artist, John Burningham. Peter Bently went to ten different schools around the world and studied languages at Oxford University. He started writing for children soon after becoming a parent and now lives in Devon, close to the moors and the sea, with his wife, Lucy, and their children Theo (alias King Jack) and Tara.


PreS-K-Three little boys play make-believe before bedtime in Bently's rhyming picture book (Dial, 2011). Jack plays the King and his friends Zack and Casper are his knights. They protect the castle by fighting dragons and beasts, until "giants" come to put each boy to bed. The muted colors in Helen Oxenbury's charming illustrations make this book perfect for quiet time or bedtime reading. The boys are adorable as they act out their imagined adventures. Andrew Watts narrates the story with a soothing voice that matches the tone of the book. Page-turn signals are optional. A great addition to libraries and classrooms serving young children.-Jenny Ventling, Dayton Metro Library, OH (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
