I like books by Anthony Browne

Walker Books, 2003. ISBN 9780744598575
(0+) A colourful picture book featuring Browne's signature chimp, this is a celebration of what books have to offer. The little chimp likes all sorts of books, funny books and scary books, and books about pirates and space and dinosaurs.
Each page has text about a different type of book with an amusing illustration to match. There is Little Red Riding Hood carrying a basket of books on the page about fairy tales and a scary ghost behind the little chimp reading on the page about scary books. The expressions on the faces are wonderful, and children will have lots of fun examining them.
I like books lends itself to discussions about the types and names of books that children like, and would be a lovely books to read at bedtime.
