Not on a School Night! By Rebecca Patterson

Not on a School Night! is one of those books written for kids which strikes a chord with both the adult reader and the children. We have read this nearly every other night since we were kindly sent a review copy. It tells the story of two naughty little brothers who should be settling down for bed, but instead have a series of adventures. Featuring dinosaurs, duvet slugs and a mummy who looks scarily like myself, it’s a great fun book.

The illustrations are bright and colourful providing lots of talking points which I find useful. The other great thing about this book is that the font used is child friendly, which means its actually possible for early readers to have a good go at reading it themselves. But be warned! My own children hadn’t thought about using the bedsheets to transform themselves into superheros until they were given the idea here!

Not on a School Night is published by Macmillan Childrens Books (ISBN 978-0-230-74764-7) and is £10.99 hardback
