Bright, captivating and vibrant illustrations from UK’s Emily Gravett effortlessly re capture a scenario all too familiar in households with little occupants. Know any expectant parents? Send them this one, as a warning friendly chuckle at what is around the corner.
Cedric the dragon, at bedtime, quietly listens to the detailed story from his mum … then emits that little word … ‘again?’ … urm, more than once! Almost patient mum (I like that about her), re tells the story several times, with a few omissions each time and a few not so subtle hints woven in to the story – this became very familiar.
Love the pencil scrawled AGAIN! on the pages as little Cedric does what most little people do – get angry. However, being a dragon, Cedric turns red and breathes …… yep! … with fun consequences to the final pages of the book! Love the imagination in this, and the tongue in cheek humour evident here is always a hit a My Book Corner.
Again! made the The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2013 shortlist.
