Another story of the big skeleton, the little skeleton and the dog skeleton. This time they find that they can’t stop bumping into each other whether they’re in the park, at home or at school. The only thing to do is to send for Dr Bones who does a great job of patching them up again.

Bumps in the Night is one of the titles in Allan Ahlberg’s iconic children’s picture book series about skeletons, Funnybones. Despite being set in a dark dark house, this brightly coloured book is perfect for early readers!

No matter where they are, the two skeletons keep going bump in the night – clonk!

There’s only one thing to do: “Send for Doctor Bones!”
