From the author/illustrator team behind The Snatchabook comes a music-filled journey to bedtime.

"Orange moon,

blue baboon.

Blue baboon

spies bassoon."

Blue baboon is eager to play the bassoon with her new friends. But a monsoon threatens to spoil the fun. Fortunately a big balloon arrives in time to carry them to a dune where they can all play in tune together!

Praise for The Storybook Knight:

"A plot summary doesn't do justice to the childlike charm and wit of this colorful picture book."—Booklist

Praise for The Snatchabook

"I dare you to try to read The Snatchabook silently to yourself. You can't do it. The book is so wonderful it demands to be read out loud. And besides, if you didn't read the book out loud, how would the Snatch-a-book hear it?"—Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick

"This ever-so-sweet story begs to be read out loud. No doubt this one will be a hit with kids and parents alike."—Booklist

"With rhyming text reminiscent of Dr. Seuss's work, this book refuses to be read silently. Children will be begging for this book to be read to them every night—clever ones will claim they want to keep the Snatchabook happy."—School Library Journal

"The story is sweet and the illustrations darling."—Kirkus Reviews

"This whodunit with an uplifting ending will appeal to fans of How the Grinch Stole Christmas!...[It] celebrates bedtime reading as a ritual to be revered, and features a thief who merely wants to share in the fun."—Shelf Awareness Pro
