Giveaway: The Mumsnet Book of Bedtime Stories

The Mumsnet Book of Bedtime Stories

The Mumsnet Book of Bedtime Stories features 10 prize-winning stories written by Mumsnetters and Gransnetters, chosen by former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen. It is published in paperback format this month.

This beautifully illustrated treasury of stories is the perfect book for families to share at bedtime, with a story for every child to enjoy. 

The winning stories include the adventures of a town sheriff who rides his trusty pig rather than a horse, a plucky alpaca who makes new friends when he saves the day at the farmyard, and the eerie tale of a strange creature who wakes every 100 years to steal stars from the night sky. 

Michael Rosen says: "These are brilliant stories which remind us that there is real talent, invention and creativity amongst readers and contributors to Mumsnet and Gransnet. I really enjoyed reading and selecting these funny, clever stories."

The 10 stories are:

  • Polly the Jumping Cow by Jools Abrams-Humphries 
  • Bedtime at the Lighthouse by Philip Bell
  • Time for Bed by Michelle Eckhaus
  • The Night Thief and the Moon by Katherine Latham
  • A Parcel for Theo by Claire McCauley
  • Princess Imogen's Independent Day by Christine O'Neill
  • The Dancing Bear by Suzy Robinson
  • The Sheriff of Rusty Nail by Sophie Wills
  • Celeste Who Sang to the Stars by Kate Wilson
  • Allie to the Rescue by Helen Yendall
