Publisher's Description

A little dragon and his favorite book make for a combustible combination in this clever picture book with a surprise ending.

It’s nearly Cedric the dragon’s bedtime, and for Cedric, bedtime means storytime! When his mother reads him his favorite book, he likes the story so much that he wants to hear it again…and again…and again!

Cedric’s mom understands that the best stories are ripe for repetition, and she tries very hard to be patient. But sometimes dragons will be dragons—which is why this bedtime tale ends with an incendiary surprise!

Editorial Reviews

"Gravett, that master of the metafictive die cut, returns for a savvy bedtime satire...should strike a chord."
"Gravett takes a slight idea and builds cleverly upon it to offer a fresh take on a familiar scenario."
"Gravett’s latest experiment with metafiction imagines the possible trajectory of a child’s appeal to hear a bedtime story ad infinitum...Youngsters will delight in deciphering the visual narrative in their own multiple readings and will relate to the range of emotions displayed by their scaly stand-in."
"Gravett, whose stories often include surprising die cuts and satisfying metafictive elements, takes the I-don’t-want-to-go-to-sleep trope to a new, fiery level...Though it’s hard to think that human child readers will want to sleep after this abrupt yet satisfying ending, it is clear that they will be screaming “AGAIN!”
"This is a creative bit of fun to which many a tired parent and enthusiastic child will relate, and the dragon aspect will appeal to many youngsters as well....The boldness of the pictures and brevity of the text will make this a sure-fire winner for group storytimes and patient parents with plenty of energy may find it suitable bedtime fare as well."
