Synopsis

A classic Emily Brown bedtime story about being scared of the dark. From Children's Laureate, Cressida Cowell.

Emily Brown and her rabbit, Stanley, are trying to sleep. But a Splish-Splosh noise is keeping them awake...
It's a Thing! And this Thing just won't go to sleep. Emily Brown and Rabbit try everything, but nothing works. Just what could be the matter?

This warm and witty picture book is perfect for sharing with children who may be afraid of the dark. With a gentle message that things are never quite as scary as they first seem.

"It's funny, it's got twists and turns, and shows us, among other things, that we can spend too much time nurturing our fears rather than trying to conquer them." The Guardian

The illustrations are often dark and complex but they are entirely appropriate to the story
