Frances the badger doesn't want to go to bed so she tries everything she can think of to put off the big event. First she has a glass of milk, then she makes sure that both her parents have kissed her goodnight (twice), and then she says she can't go to her room because there just might be a hungry tiger or giant up there waiting for her. Will Frances's parents ever get their daughter to sleep? Illustrated with drawings.
Author Bio
Russell Hoban
Encouraged to draw and paint as a child, Russell Hoban eventually went on to write and illustrate children's books, many with his first wife, Lillian. However, he also enjoyed writing, and has written several novels for adults. "Riddley Walker" is the most acclaimed of these novels, winning the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Nebula Award, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, as well as the Australian Science Fiction Achievement Award.

Garth Williams illustrated several classic books for children including STUART LITTLE and CHARLOTTE'S WEB, both written by E. B. White, as well as all the books in Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" series. Williams and his family moved around a lot during his childhood, giving him the opportunity to live not only in the United States, but also Canada and England. Upon reaching adulthood and returning to the United States, Williams tried to get a job illustrating for "The New Yorker" magazine, but his artistic style was considered too "European." However, it was "New Yorker" contributor E. B. White himself who suggested that Williams illustrate STUART LITTLE. In addition to illustrating the works of other authors, Williams also wrote and illustrated his own books, such as THE RABBITS' WEDDING.
