Colin McNaughton's energetic rhymes, whimsically illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark, transform one child's quiet night into a celebration full of beloved fairy-tale characters. The fairy tale characters that come knocking at the door, barging in with a present in their hand were the Three Black Cats, Man In The Moon, Three Little Pigs, Little Bo-Peep, Little Miss Muffet, Jack and Jill, Goldilocks and The Three Bears, Punch. Then the knocking stops, the glass is tapped and all of a sudden they sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to the boy.

Emma Chichester Clark has written and illustrated many books for young readers, including the Blue Kangaroo stories. He was a bit more cautious and opened it a tad, but the moon rushed in and spun him around. Then there was a trio of little pigs peeking in at a little guy who looked very wary. Not good because when they rushed in he ended up flat on his back again.

This book was first published in England, so the traditional characters of Punch, Judy, their baby and Crocodile also appear, which will require some explanation for American readers. A slapstick, "he's a jolly good fellow" atmosphere prevails, with the whole cast of characters singing a birthday greeting to the boy as a surprise conclusion. Chichester Clark's comical watercolor illustrations are filled with patterned costumes, flowers, balloons and amusing action as the fairy-tale characters trip over themselves to get to the party on time.

Colin McNaughton's first book was published while he was still at the RC. .His exuberant picture books with their comic-strip techniques, often take the form of an extended joke: When I was little, adults were always telling me to & Being Silly' and to & Messing About'. Not Last Night But the Night Before; Author: Colin McNaughton; Illustrator: Emma Chichester Clark; Publisher: Walker Books Ltd.

Good Night, Sleep Tight. The bedtime ritual can often feel like the plot of Not Last Night but the Night Before, the new picture book by Colin McNaughton, in which the characters of familiar children’s literature - the three little pigs, the three blind mice - all drop in on the nameless and bewildered narrator. The effortless rhymes ( I came downstairs to let them in; they knocked me down like a bowling pin ) maintain a manic tone, as do Emma Chichester Clark’s pencil and acrylic drawings, which come to a rolling stop at the line between being inspired by Maurice Sendak and ripping him off.

Pub Date: 1st April 2010. Perfect illustrated fiction for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Tom Gates.

Not last night but the night before, lots of folk knocked at the boy's door. They knocked him down when he let them in - but was there a big surprise for him?

We originally got this from the library and my 3 year old loved it! It's very cute how they intertwine fairy tale characters into this new book. Highly recommend!

This book is a gem. After reading it a couple of times to my grandson he picked up on the phrases and would finish the sentences that I would start. It was great fun reading it with him!!

We could not remember the whole verse of this poem. Then I saw the book and ordered it. Now my whole family is reciting it!

A young boy, outfitted in his jammies, ran to the half door. Three black cats were `a knocking at his Dutch door and when he opened it . . . POW! They knocked him down flat. "Not last night, but the night before, the man in the man in the moon came knocking at the door." He was a bit more cautious and opened it a tad, but the moon rushed in and spun him around. Then there was a trio of little pigs peeking in at a little guy who looked very wary. Not good because when they rushed in he ended up flat on his back again.

"Not last night but the night before,
Little Bo-peep came knocking at the door.
Goodness gracious, fancy that.
She darted in and knocked me flat.
(She'd found her sheep.)"

In came Miss Muffet and there's Jack and Jill. Of course if they showed up, you'd have to have the three blind mice and Goldilocks. Ooops, "Crash! Bang! Wallop!" We mustn't forget the three bears. Just who else was going to show up at that door and flatten that boy?

This charming, whimsical story in rhyme is a virtual welcoming mat for many of our favorite nursery rhyme and fairy tale characters. This book would be a special treat for the youngster who is well versed in an assortment of characters. I loved how each character or set of characters was introduced peeking over the bottom half of the Dutch door or around the corner. Your preschooler will be anxious to turn the page and watch the ensuing hullabaloo when they rush in. This is a book just waiting for someone who would enjoy a few giggle moments!

"NOT last NIGHT but the NIGHT beFORE, THREE black CATS came KNOCKing at the door."
Colin McNaughton's use of this ancient jump rope rhyme turns on some switch in my brain that MAKES me read the words aloud and MAKES me want to tap my foot, twirl the rope, move my hips. Thank goodness story hour is only day after tomorrow! I think I'll have the kids clap the rhythm.
McNaughton's choice of nursery rhyme characters too, even including the legendary Mister Punch, give us a chance to reintroduce children to that fading tradition creatively. And the book should definitely be read twice at least to fully appreciate Emma Chichester Clark's illustrations. The first time through, I was so hypnotized by the rhyme that I didn't notice Clark's clever detail building in the illustrations to bring the story to its end.

This charmingly illustrated book is currently keeping my 4 year old entertained. I tried reading it aloud to a group of his classmates and had a little less success. The title line gets repeated a lot and I think that type of repetition might have bored the kids like a joke that was dragging on too long before the punch line.

In a one on one situation this isn't a problem, because my son is having so much fun looking at the details in the great character illustrations that he is better able to cope with the repetitious manner of the book.

I really wanted this one to work for story time because its clever, its cute and just a really well made story. Unfortunately, the preschoolers I read stories to don't always agree with what I want. They got kind of bored - the younger ones didnt catch onto the character thing, with the exception of Little Miss Muffett. I found myself trying to explain all the characters, sort of like "come on, don't you get it?" Never a good thing. The only exception was the Happy Birthday Song. They all loved that - I think that was the only time they paid attention to the story. So, even though I loved it, the kids were not that impressed. A mixed review on this one.
