Product Details

About the Author

Peter Bently attended ten schools around the world and studied languages at Oxford. He started writing for children after becoming a parent and lives in Devon with his wife, Lucy, and children Theo and Tara.


A new nursery classic has just hit the shelves...a total joy to read aloud * Telegraph Magazine * This charming, atmospheric, multiracial tale is both exciting and comforting * Sunday Times * Helen Oxenbury's illustrations are timeless and the poignant story is perfect in its simplicity. A classic * Angels and Urchins *

PreS-K-Three little boys play make-believe before bedtime in Bently's rhyming picture book (Dial, 2011). Jack plays the King and his friends Zack and Casper are his knights. They protect the castle by fighting dragons and beasts, until "giants" come to put each boy to bed. The muted colors in Helen Oxenbury's charming illustrations make this book perfect for quiet time or bedtime reading. The boys are adorable as they act out their imagined adventures. Andrew Watts narrates the story with a soothing voice that matches the tone of the book. Page-turn signals are optional. A great addition to libraries and classrooms serving young children.-Jenny Ventling, Dayton Metro Library, OH (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
