This (at least in the Swedish original) is my all-time favourite going-to-bed story for kids. It is perfectly written on two levels, so it is just as amusing for the adult as the child... Astrid Lindgren's wonderfully dry sense of humour suffuses the whole book. If you have a child who won't go to bed in the evening, you are OBLIGED to get this!

Jag kan den här boken utantill, det är ett mästerverk.
What a beautiful book!
My children absolutely loved it. A charming story about a boy named Larry who didn't want to go to bed. Sweet tale is accompanied by beautiful and detailed illustrations.

We had this book for almost two years now- it's still a huge hit, and a frequent request at bedtime, the little bird is my daughter's (3) favorite forever.
