Again! by Emily Gravett.
But before I write more about this book, I’d like to tell you more about our ‘Storytime @ Home’.
At the end of the day, when we trudge wearily towards the bed, the little one jumps up and down on the mattress with a book. Once his father has done his share of storytelling he’s put to bed with a kiss and the attention shifts to me. After the telling of one story, comes a request for another, ‘Punha!’ (which in Marathi means Again!) or ‘Ajun ek’ (which means ‘One more!’). And in between nodding off and waking up to find him staring expectantly for another story, he’s past his bedtime.
Now substitute Cedric the Dragon for my son and Cedric’s Mum for me. And that is the story of Again!
