A funny picture book by two of the most familiar names in children's books. Two little boys demand a story from their dad at bedtime. So he tells them the story of a pig who ate too much. But "that's no good, Dad," the boys say. "Tell us a better one instead." So Dad tells them the story of a cat who ate too much and split his fur. "Too mad," is the boys' verdict. Next, Dad tells them the story of a horse who ate too much and died. "Too sad," say the little boys, who are looking wider and wider awake while dad looks increasingly exhausted. His final story is of a cow who ate too much and wins cups for the creamiest milk and loudest moo. At this point, Dad falls asleep and the little boys creep downstairs and demand a story from their mum instead! Allan Ahlberg has also written "The Jolly Postman" and "The Jolly Christmas Postman", "Peepo", "The Giant Baby" as well as the Red Nose Readers and the Happy Families series. Colin McNaughton has illustrated "There's a Lot of Weirdos in our Neighbourhood", "Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed", "Making Friends with Frankenstein", "Have You Seen Who's Moved In Next Door to Us? (winner of the 1991 Emil/Kurt Maschler Award), "Jolly Roger"(winner of
