Baby badger is scared of the dark until his father takes him for a walk in the woods and shows him the wonders of the night. A sedate, beautifully-illustrated little book that should enchant both toddlers and the adults reading it to them. Holds up to repeated reading very well, and the Bean is a big fan of it (but then he’s a big fan of anything containing the moon these days, so take that as it comes). I quite like this one. *** ½
