A modern picture-book classic - there's never a dull moment with the Large family!

It's Mr Large's birthday and Mrs Large has prepared him a meal, as they're going to celebrate with a quiet night in. But as usual in the Large household, things don't go to plan, and Mr and Mrs Large fall asleep on the sofa! So the little Larges sneak off to bed with all the lovingly prepared food...

Yup this is life. We love these collection of books. Poor mummy wants the kids to go to bed to celebrate daddy's birthday but he falls asleep instead. Lots of mischief, it's funny and a classic Sophie loved this one.

This is a fab story for little ones and one that all parents can relate to. The mom is planning a quiet night in for the daddys birthday, the children moan about going to bed early and when daddy arrives home from work he is so tired he falls to sleep while reading the bedtime story. Mommy then takes over the bedtime story and she also falls to sleep becuse she is so tired. 

My little boy loves this book and we read it over and over again.

This story will be familiar to any parent who has tried to plan a night out (or in) and hopes they'll get away with it for just one night! Love the family relationships in this series, so many scenes ring a bell. My two girls 6 and 4 both still love it

This is a lovely story for younger children. The theme is so familiar to parents and the author had captured the warmth and love in family relationships perfectly. It's easy for very young children to join in with, in parts, and the patterned language supports more experienced readers too. I've given it 4 stars as it is a little dated now in terms of the parental roles.
