"This colourful beautifully illustrated picture book tells the story of an imaginative little girl who is ‘Not yet!’ ready for bed! The story has a good pace as the little girl has a series of adventures. Rhyming couplets give this narrative a sparkly quality with interesting words such as ‘snuggle’, ‘nuzzle’, ‘squeeze’ and ‘tickle’ all standing out in a larger, bold font. This book has many talking points."

Kangaroo Kisses

Nandana Dev Sen

Illustrated by Pippa Curnick

“Darling, it’s time for...

B E D!”

 

Not yet!

If I tickle giraffe

she’ll giggle and laugh!

Then I'll brush furry B E A R!

 

“Please brush your own H A I R!”

 

This fun and playful book is a lovely mix of fantasy and real life as one mischievous child delays getting ready for bed, and features some much-loved animals along the way.
