The perennial and well-loved classic picture book story about parents too preoccupied to notice their own child. Bernard's parents are so busy doing their own thing, that the monster can eat Bernard's dinner, break his toys, and even eat Bernard, without being noticed!
"My favourite books for very young children are Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and Not Now Bernard by David McKee." -- Michael Rosen "Not Now Bernard is THE book of our times" * Frank Cottrell-Boyce * "It's so good!" * Adam Buxton * "Possibly my favourite picture book of all time. It's so powerful, it's so funny, dark - it's everything. That to me is the number one kids book of all time... It's funny to a four year old and meaningful to a 36 year old" * Ben Bailey Smith aka Doc Brown * "Even very young children see the joke." * T.E.S. *
