Not Now, Bernard

Bernard’s parents are always really busy. It doesn’t matter what he says to them. The answer’s always the same: “Not now, Bernard!” So how can he tell them that there’s a hungry monster in the garden? It’s gobbled up his dinner, it’s broken his toys – and now it wants to eat him up! If you like Elmer, you’ll love this funny classic about families and monsters. If Bernard’s parents won’t listen, it’ll serve them right if the monster gobbles them up!
