Every parent knows the drill: tuck in, well, okay, one story then, but short… and so it starts.

A boy keeps outsmarting the parent who wants to finish the story. But in the end, the parent doesn’t want to stop narrating either.

This picture book is not just for reading It is also a wonderful read-together book: the interaction between the hurried adult and the child, who pushes him to continue storytelling, will bring much joy.

Kees de Boer brings a boy’s fantasy to life in a fun and unique way: monsters, soldiers, more monsters…

Tjibbe Veldkamp wrote a story that continues forever. An ode to the imagination and the magical power of stories: the ideal book for every child that can never get enough of bedtime stories!
