Written and illustrated by Emily Gravett.
The latest book from master artist and storyteller Emily Gravett does not disappoint. Bursting with color, Again! tells the tale of Cedric, a young dragon who LOVES his bedtime story. When Cedric is ready for bed, his mother reads to him. But every time Cedric’s mother finishes the book, Cedric shouts, “Again!” Over and over Cedric hears the story—with Cedric’s mother subtly changing some words, as mothers tend to do after many repetitions—and over and over he says “Again!” Getting more and more passionate about the story, eventually Cedric gets so worked up that he—well, I won’t spoil it, but suffice it to say that Emily Gravett’s surprise ending will leave readers shouting “Again!” right along with Cedric.
As entertaining as it is familiar, “Again!” is a perfect bedtime story for parents and children alike.
Recommended for ages 3 and up.
