Jez Alborough’s bio


author/illustrator: Jez Alborough

Itís bedtime for Bobo, but the little chimp isnít ready to stop playing for the day. So he hitches a ride on an obliging giraffe, only to be carried back to his mother when she calls. His mother tells him again to stay, but Bobo canít help catching a lift on the back of a turtle to see whatís across the pond and on top of a nearby hill. Now itís getting dark, and heís all alone, with no idea how to get home. ďMommy!Ē Every mischievous child who has ever resisted bedtime will take comfort in this lighthearted ode to the bond between mother and child ó and the community of friends that surrounds them.

For the perfect bedtime story, the inimitable Bobo the chimp returns in another book of very few words ó and very big heart.
