Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Frances the badger appears on the small screen for the second time in this animated adaptation of Russell Hoban's popular 1960 children's book, Bedtime for Frances. When bedtime arrives around dusk, at 7pm, the entire family is set to hit the hay, but Frances procrastinates. Fully convinced of the monsters that lurk around her bed when her parents turn out the lights, and bouncing off the walls with energy, Frances invents an endless series of excuses to keep her folks in the room - from asking that her door be cracked just so, to insisting that mom and dad tuck her in, to cooking up one silly question after another, she feels determined not to be left by herself. This story will hit close to home for children and parents alike, and makes a perfect companion piece to bedtime.
