Show with Jedda Bradley
Giving your middle-grade child a rich inner life
with warm, funny, smart bedtime stories
let's be real
By bedtime, your creativity is underneath the laundry pile.
All you want to do is flop, face first, on the couch.
Heck, you’re so cranky... you just want to be left alone to binge on Netflix….
Of course, you still want your children to have stories.
You want to offer them warmth and fun.
You also want bedtime to be a special time to connect.
And it still can be.
The Egbert, Margaret & Stephen Show
(So you can feel good about being you)
Three quirky super-nerdy kids.
Who leap into peculiar ideas that lead into wacky adventures.
Of course they get angry with each other, fight, plot revenge and make up.
They're funny, amusing, and eccentric.
Sometimes they're just downright weird.
Because we all are. Right?!
When you're with them, the world is a better, more curious, unique place.
I love them because they are funny and the characters get themselves into all sorts of trouble.
My favourite bit is when Stephen glues a parrot to Egbert's head.
I laughed so much I vomited, not literally.
10/10 from me.
Julie, Sunshine North Primary School
I've been playing my Year 5/6 students your stories on zoom. The kids really love them. The humour is funny and edgy! When we listened to EMS and The French Teacher, one kid gasped - "she's going to kill the teacher!".
I loooooove your stories but especially EMS and The French Teacher. When the waitress hit the French teacher with the baguette I laughed
very, very hard.
Everyone should be
listening to these.
Warm. Smart. Funny.
Egbert's the second-best swimmer at the swimming pool and today all he wants is to find his brother's lost bathers. Jack the Bomber is the best swimmer and he wants Egbert thrown out. Egbert's running out of time.
