The Wrong Side of the Bed

Lisa Bakos, Anna Raff (Illustrator)


List Price: 16.99*
* Individual store prices may vary.


When you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, there’s just no getting around it: The porcupine under the covers will insist on snuggling (oww); penguins will make bubbles in your bath (eww); and a crocodile will probably need to borrow your toothbrush (no, thanks). It’s just going to be that sort of day.

, that is, you decide to do something about it.

A whimsical assortment of havoc-wreaking critters is here to inspire Lucy—and readers—to turn their all-wrong days into all-right ones.

About the Author

Lisa Bakos is a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles, who enjoys writing children’s books when she’s not taking care of her loving but slightly crazy family. Though she occasionally wakes up on the wrong side of the bed, she often has cold feet because she lives with an assortment of snugglers and a caboodle of cover hogs, including but not limited to her husband, three kids, three cats, two dogs, and one bird.

Anna Raff is the illustrator of several books for children, including World Rat Day and A Big Surprise for Little Card. She lives and works in New York City, where, as of yet, no octopus has gained access to her sock drawer.
