They Come at Night

Henrik Jonsson, illustrated by Henrik Jonsson

A spine-tingling bedtime story full of humour and warmth. Every night monsters appear in Ami’s room. But when Ami calls out and Mummy comes in to see they disappear without a trace. It must be because the monsters are afraid of mummies! So if Mummy sleeps in Ami’s bed the monsters won’t dare to come in. But… imagine if they take Daddy instead? After all he’s sleeping alone in the big bed! A gentle mini-thriller for everyone who (dis)likes nightmares and ghosts. Henrik Jonsson is a master at balancing monsters and fears with humour and bits of Lego on the floor, in a picture world entirely on a child’s terms.
