Being a plush toy might sound like an easy job, but when a newcomer joins their group, the bedside toys show him everything that goes into taking care of a child while he is sleeping. Every night, they make sure that he isn?t too hot or too cold, and that he stays safely in his bed. They chase away bedbugs and bad dreams. And on Christmas Eve they have the very important task of making sure the child does not awake until morning. The new toy ? and the reader ? will find a lot
to learn before the night is over.
Acclaimed author-artist Alexis Deacon has produced an enchanting bedtime picture book filled with soothing, dreamy pictures and gentle humor.
