Description

This beloved classic bedtime book continues to spark giggles and is a perfect read-aloud at bedtime.

It may be bedtime for Frances, but before Frances can sleep, she needs a glass of milk, a kiss from Father, one from Mother, her teddy bear, her doll, another kiss from Father, and another one from Mother. And then there are tigers and giants and ominous cracks in the ceiling to keep her up. Will Frances ever go to sleep?

Frances the badger made her debut with this title, long a favorite for the gentle humor of its familiar going to bed ritual.

Here is the coziest, most beguiling bedtime story in many a day. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Back cover copy

Famed for her many adventures, Frances made her debut with this title over thirty years ago. In this first Frances book, the little badger adroitly delays her bedtime with requests for kisses and milk, and concerns over tigers and giants and things going bump in the night. Long a favorite for the gentle humor of its familiar going to bed ritual, Bedtime for Frances is at last available with the warmth of full color enriching Garth Williams's original nuanced and touching art. 'Here is the coziest, most beguiling bedtime story in many a day.'--Kirkus Reviews (pointer).
