The Little King really should have been fast asleep long ago. But he isn’t even a little bit tired! What on earth should he do? Count sheep? No, the Little King would rather go back into the kitchen to check on the delicious pudding he and his friends cooked earlier on. He tries one small spoonful and then another… And suddenly his animal friends turn up in the kitchen, too. Of course, they all want a taste, as well. And before you can count to three, they have finished the bowl. But the pudding seems to be a slumber-inducing pudding because very soon the Little King and his friends are very, very tired and say “goodnight”.

“Cat kisses taste the most purrrrfect,” says Currant, the kitten, as she goes out to play for a while before supper. Hedwig, the goat, hears this – and doesn’t agree, at all. Before Currant knows what’s happening, the goat has planted a rather pongy smacker on her face. And as if that weren’t enough, the other farm animals all think their kisses are best, so that Currant gets to compare the pig’s belly blower, the butterfly’s gentle brush, the duck’s peck, the cow’s smooch, the horse’s pursed lips and the mouse’s snog. But at the end of the day, what she loves the most … is Mummy Cat’s goodnight kiss! | 3 +
