It's nearly Cedric the dragon's bedtime -- there's just time for his mum to read him his favourite book. Unfortunately for her, Cedric likes the story so much that he wants to hear it again ...and again ...and again ...with incendiary consequences! A typically clever and quite irresistable book from a star talent.

"Gravett, that master of the metafictive die cut, returns for a savvy bedtime satire...should strike a chord." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Gravett takes a slight idea and builds cleverly upon it to offer a fresh take on a familiar scenario." (Booklist)
"Gravett’s latest experiment with metafiction imagines the possible trajectory of a child’s appeal to hear a bedtime story ad infinitum...Youngsters will delight in deciphering the visual narrative in their own multiple readings and will relate to the range of emotions displayed by their scaly stand-in." (School Library Journal)
"Gravett, whose stories often include surprising die cuts and satisfying metafictive elements, takes the I-don’t-want-to-go-to-sleep trope to a new, fiery level...Though it’s hard to think that human child readers will want to sleep after this abrupt yet satisfying ending, it is clear that they will be screaming “AGAIN!” (The Horn Book)
"This is a creative bit of fun to which many a tired parent and enthusiastic child will relate, and the dragon aspect will appeal to many youngsters as well....The boldness of the pictures and brevity of the text will make this a sure-fire winner for group storytimes and patient parents with plenty of energy may find it suitable bedtime fare as well." (BCCB)
