Unwrapping Some Brilliant Illustrations for You

The Book

This story is very creative and unique.  Who thought a bed could narrate a story and have feelings and opinions about how it is being used or misused?  

"Bed has something to say. 
Bed knows you do not like bedtime. 
And Bed gets it. But look ... "
YOU are not so great, either ...

Bed has completely had it and here's why.  For a long, long time he has taken the brunt of feet kicking, being jumped upon,  stinky drooling, blankets stolen at night, and smelly things piled up under him,  just to name a few.  He lays it all on the line and uncovers his innermost observations.    

This quirky anthropomorphized piece of furniture is full of personality, compassion and love!  This heartwarming book sparks conversations, perspective and viewpoint.  It offers valuable life lessons on respect and empathy.  

The illustrations are almost retro-style with lots of colour and spunk.  It makes for a perfect bedtime story.  Kids will never look at their bed in the same light again.  I love it and recommend it whole-heartedly!
