Penny Dale’s cozy take on a favorite nursery rhyme available in a charming board book edition with an appealing cover.

"There were ten in the bed and the little one said, 'Roll over, roll over!' So they all rolled over and Hedgehog fell out. . . ."

One by one, nine friends roll over and fall out of a boy’s bed with a bang, a thump, or a plop until . . . "I’m cold! I miss you!" the boy says, and back in the bed they all go. In a sturdy board book begging many repeat readings, Penny Dale’s popular rendition of this childhood song is as warm and toasty as a feather bed.
