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!"
