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…

About the Author:
When Nicola was 5 years old her parents banned Saturday morning television, and she has been drawing ever since. Nicola grew up in Singapore surrounded by the vibrant colours of the tropics and had not even heard of illustration as a career before she discovered the Illustration course at Edinburgh College of Art. Having graduated from ECA, Nicola has now completed a Masters in Printmaking from Camberwell College of Art, as well as pursuing a career in children’s book illustration. She gets most of her ideas for children’s books when she should be working on something else, and bases all of her characters on people she knows.
