The Sleepytime Storybook - Illustrated by J.P. Miller

 
 
 
 
 
Posted by PicasaToday's book is 'Sleepytime Stories', illustrated by J.P. Miller.  I always feel sorry for King Midas when I read about The Golden Touch, don't you?  The Husband Who Tried to Keep House makes me laugh - I guess that husband will appreciate his wife more next time!  What kinds of stories have you been reading to your kids at night lately?  My daughter and I have started reading Babe:  The Gallant Pig by Dick King-Smith (love that movie!!)  and we're going to start on the next Pippi Longstocking book - Pippi Goes on Board.

  1. Awww, I love Babe! I read it to Big Sis when she was very little - she doesn't remember it now. In fact, I doubt either girl remembers the movies.

    Love JP Miller!

  3. J. P. Miller is such a great illustrator. He had a light touch, but also sophisticated and self-assured. I enjoy the books you choose.

  4. My little granddaughter loves Angelina Ballerina and In the night garden, so I read a few of those while I was on holiday in Australia. I miss her bedtime routine now that I’m back home in the UK.
    The sleepytime story book looks very pretty.
