Not Now, Bernard

Published to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the book, each lavish hardback is signed by David McKee and contains an introduction by former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen.

Bernard has a problem. There's a monster in the back garden but his mum and dad are too busy to notice. So Bernard tries to befriend the monster… and that doesn't go quite to plan. Loved by children, monsters and adults for thirty five years, this beautiful collector's edition is a must-own for all fans of David McKee's classic picture book.


"My favourite books for very young children are Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and Not Now Bernard by David McKee."
Michael Rosen

"Not Now Bernard is THE book of our times"
Frank Cottrell-Boyce

"Arguably the finest children's books ever written, McKee's clever fable is both a warning to neglectful parents and a very funny story about being ignored."
The i

"It's so good!"
Adam Buxton

"Not Now, Bernard could be the most profound picture book I’ve ever read. [It’s] possibly my favourite picture book of all time. It's so powerful, it's so funny, dark - it's everything. That to me is the number one kids book of all time... It's funny to a four year old and meaningful to a 36 year old"
Ben Bailey Smith aka Doc Brown
