Monty the mole's favourite bedtime story is about a hero, a monster and a magic wand. Monty wants to be a hero too so he sneaks out at night in search of adventure. He meets Herbert the hedgehog and together they decide to be heroes and search for magic. Monty finds a conker shell and uses it as a helmet for protection in case they meet a monster! And they do - along comes a grumpy badger but Herbert uses his spikes to send him on his way. Then Herbert tumbles down a hole and it's Monty's chance to be a hero and help his friend. The heroes continue on their adventure and find what they think is a magic wand - a dandelion. They shake it but all the magic seems to disappear - or does it? Will Monty's wish come true? Part of the QED Storytime series, this beautifully illustrated book introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories, and includes supporting notes for parents and teachers. Storytime has recently featured on Cbeebies Bedtime Stories.
