Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wildly entertaining without being alarming, Under the Bed will send your wary child to bed giggling. The book's crazy collection of worried creatures are scared — not scary — and your child will know it's true. Boisterous. Brilliantly colorful. Hairy green, spiney red, warty and winged, these monsters flee the bedroom when they discover the child. But not before they've stirred a mild rumpus — and prepared a child for deep, sweet sleep.

Review:

"This is a good choice for preschoolers worried about sleeping in their own beds." School Library Journal

Review:

"For all of Bright's vivid imagery and Cort's grand detonations of color as he goes about depicting this cockamamie bestiary, this is a very soothing affair, especially suitable for bedtime reading." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Under the bed are bugs and beasts, A dragon, an alligator, eating midnight feasts. And under the bed is something more 'Something bigger than a stable door' Horrible, hairy, with warts on his nose, With knots in his tail and mould in his toes. You really won't believe your eyes - For under the bed is a BIG surprise!

This is a great book for children. Especially those who are afraid of something under their bed. If they think there are monsters under their bed, as soon as they read this book they wont be scared! They will soon realize that as soon as they get into bed, all the scary creatures will leave because they are scared of them more than they are scared of the monsters!
This is a great book for children and I recommend it 100%
