Rabbit doesn’t want to go to bed, and thinks if it doesn’t get dark he won’t have to, so he decides to kidnap The Dark and trap it in a biscuit tin. Now he can stay up all night long. But The Dark reminds Rabbit of all the good things that he does. What about all the nocturnal animals? he asks . . . and surely you can’t have a yummy breakfast of toast and honey and fresh orange juice unless you’ve been to bed? But the BEST thing about The Dark, of course, is reading a really good bedtime story . . .

Includes a surprise fold-out spread.
