Bernard's got a problem. He's found a monster in the back garden but his mum and dad are just too busy to notice. So Bernard tries to befriend the monster... and that doesn't go quite to plan. Loved by children, monsters and adults for thirty five years, David McKee's iconic picture book is celebrated in this special anniversary paperback that includes embossing and a free downloadable audiobook.
"Not Now Bernard is THE book of our times" * Frank Cottrell-Boyce * "Arguably the finest children's books ever written, McKee's clever fable is both a warning to neglectful parents and a very funny story about being ignored." * The i * "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 * "Well-loved classic... Little ones will love (and recognise all too soon!) the oft-repeated 'Not now, Bernard', leaving older children and their parents to appreciate the black humour and static, expressive illustrations" * Guardian, The Best New Children's Books supplement *
