Bernard's got a problem: he's found a monster in the back garden but his mum and dad are just too busy to notice. So Bernard tries to befriend the monster... and that doesn't go quite to plan. Loved by children, monsters and adults for forty years, David McKee's iconic picture book is celebrated in this special anniversary paperback. '...even more relevant in an era of parents glued to their mobile phones' DAILY MAIL, Best Reads Ever 'Arguably the finest children's book ever written, McKee's clever fable is both a warning to neglectful parents and a very funny story about being ignored.' THE i NEWSPAPER 'My favourite books for very young children are Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and Not Now Bernard by David McKee.' Michael Rosen 'Not Now Bernard is THE book of our times' Frank Cottrell-Boyce 'It's so good!' Adam Buxton 'Funny to a four year old and meaningful to a 36 year old' Ben Bailey Smith aka Doc Brown

Reviews for Not Now, Bernard: 40th Anniversary Edition

My favourite books for very young children are Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and Not Now Bernard by David McKee. -- Michael Rosen Not Now Bernard is THE book of our times * Frank Cottrell-Boyce * It's so good! * Adam Buxton * Possibly my favourite picture book of all time. It's so powerful, it's so funny, dark - it's everything. That to me is the number one kids book of all time... It's funny to a four year old and meaningful to a 36 year old * Ben Bailey Smith aka Doc Brown * Even very young children see the joke. * T.E.S. *
