A Month of Bedtime Stories by Neil Roy McFarlane is a humorous set of short stories which will keep children in fits of laughter as they imagine themselves playing the lead character in all these adventures. In Nanoogle Snagglebottom, you’ll meet aliens who wanted to invade Earth, but discovered the planet grew mungles, which they fear. Then you ran out of milk and went to get some in the woods, but can’t remember if it came from milk worms or a milk mine. You will also: be captured by Cockney pirates; be made general of an ant army, meet disco dancing horses; and eat beans which come from someone’s ears. Although you can’t wait to get home and relate these strange encounters, you always experience memory lapse. Who would believe you anyway?

Neil Roy McFarlane has a very active imagination and he made good use of it writing this entertaining collection called A Month of Bedtime Stories. One of the main things that makes this very amusing book stand out is the fact that the author cleverly draws young readers into every unique tale. His writing is relaxed and so creative, and he pulls readers into the strange adventures. Other main factors are the weird and witty dialogues, as well as the unbelievable, adorable characters. I think the last chapter is also wonderful, quite unusual, and it makes a good conclusion for the book. Although the novel is written for children, adults will enjoy getting a laugh from it too.


Thank you for a lovely review!
