Synopsis

A little ghost tries to give Lydia Lou a scare . . . but he can't even wake her up. So he fetches his noisy animal friends to help:

Mew! Moo! Too-whit too-whoo!

Wake up do, Lydia Lou!

Will anything ever wake her?

A gentle and playful bedtime read from Julia Donaldson, the author of The Gruffalo, and prize-winning illustrator, Karen George. Wake Up Do, Lydia Lou! is full of fun sounds which children will love to join in with time and time again.

In the media

Wake Up Do Lydia Lou is a brilliantly written, easy read for children and great for getting them involved in bedtime reading. I would definitely recommend this as a book for young children learning to read and recognise words.

Julia Donaldson can do now wrong in my eyes! I loved the drawings, and so did the toddlers, clear and bright also I think the messages is you've nothing to be scared of in the dark
The Guardian
Botboy seemed to really enjoy it and often asks for 'the ghost story'. Sackgirl likes to read it for him too, mimicking the various sound effects for the cat, cow, owl and others.
