Goonight Mo (£)

Goodnight Mo is a magically sleepy and comforting bedtime book. As night falls and the moon rises, a cute little monster gets ready for bed.

From the very first yawn, little ones will discover charming surprises in each of the 3D pop-up scenes: they will delight in gently sending various animals to the land of nod, popping bubbles in a bath, brushing Mo’s teeth, and rocking the little monster to sleep.
