Summary

Have you ever wanted to kayak down a gorge in New Zealand? Or run night-time marathons through the Californian desert? How about rollerblading 100 miles around Amsterdam?

You have? Then pour yourself a cup of cocoa, get those jim-jams on and prepare to escape into a world of adventure with this collection of life-affirming short stories from award-winning adventurer Anna McNuff.

You'll go road trippin’ through the Canadian winter. Bivvy out on a mountaintop in Wales. Explore pockets of wilderness around the city of London and take a journey by bike across Europe.

Always upbeat and often insightful, Bedtime Adventure Stories is the antidote to adult life. It’ll have you drifting off into the land of nod, dreaming up journeys of your very own - and it’s proof that the only thing standing between you and the next wild adventure is a willingness to step beyond your front door.

Because grown-ups need bedtime stories, too.

excellent

the only thing I don't like about Anna's adventures is when they end. I'll keep reading them. I discovered Anna's books in lockdown...but feel like I've seen the world with her. keep on adventuring

Another delight from Anna

I've read all Anna's books and absolutely love her no nonsense (well unless it's planned silliness) approach to both adventures and life in general. this book accompanied me of a couple of weeks
of runs and it kept me going when the weather turned or I'd had enough by making me burst with laughter. I can't wait to hear of Anna's next adventure especially if it involves the oh so common mummy juggling fun and family act many of us do.

Another Blinder of a Book from Anna McNuff!

I just can’t get enough of Anna’s books (please keep on writing them Anna!). Makes you feel like you are out there with her on the adventure trails, and increases my own drive to ‘get out there and do it’ even more! Love, love, love it!

Very Good

A very good book, it's just a shame that it's a little short.
It would be great if 1 day we could see a book of Ms. Ana and Mr. Sean Conway, surely it would be 1 of the best ever.

Really funny and well written

I’m not sure I would classify these as bedtime stories because they’re not especially restful, but they are a delight to read, very funny, and I love the way the author narrates. I would read more books by this author if there were any.
