9780140545869: It Was a Dark and Stormy Night (Picture Puffin)

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night is an exciting picture book by the iconic British husband and wife picture book team Janet and Allan Ahlberg, creators of Peepo! Perfect as a bedtime story and for children learning to read!

It was a dark and stormy night, the rain came down in torrents, there were brigands on the mountains, and wolves, and the chief of the brigands said to Antonio, "I'm bored - tell us a story!"No one tells a better story than Antonio. His tale is full of action and absurdity, pirates, parrots and chocolate carnival cake, rubies, emeralds, diamonds of enormous size . . . and a Thingy. Antonio just makes it up as he goes along. And he begins "It was a dark and stormy night . . ."
