A book of ten enchanting stories set in a magical forest with a wonderful cast of fairies, wizards, trolls, witches, dragons, and pixies. We follow Ruby and her companion Spotty the frog, on their quest to fill her story-bag before the full moon. The stories are all new and full of fun, magic and woodland charm. There's a map of the enchanted forest, and the adorable characters recur throughout the book, brought to life by Emily Bolam's fantastic illustrations. The combination of a very strong commercial idea and an exceptionally popular and saleable author and artist make THE MAGIC BEDTIME BOOK the perfect story collection.
