The Lovereading4Kids comment
Perfectly formed this is a classic wordless picture book set long ago but which nonetheless sums up the kind of bad day that can happen to anyone at anytime and the similarly timeless loving resolution of it.
In a lovely picture with him squeezed between the bed and the wall Johnny actually gets out of bed on the wrong side…Arriving downstairs crumpled and dirty, his mother gives him a brisk cleaning up which doesn’t improve his mood. He then knocks over the jug, pulls his sister’s hair, gets sent to his room, gets shouted at by his father and runs away…Fittingly but with no unnecessary explanation, all ends well.
Johnny's Bad Day by Edward Ardizzone
Johnny gets out of the wrong side of the bed one morning – a bad start to a very bad day. Johnny spills the milk at breakfast, pulls his sister’s hair, and makes a horrid banging noise with his toys. His mother and father are very cross with him and he is cross with them! The day seems to be going from bad to worse, but, by the end of it, tired and tearful Johnny is a happy boy again.

Upon retirement from Penguin in 2001, and with the belief that children of the 21st Century should have access to some of the best-loved books of the 20th Century, many of which have gone out of print over the years, Jane Nissen set up her own publishing company with the sole purpose of bringing lost children's classics back into print. In 2007, Jane was granted the Eleanor Farjeon Award for distinguished service to the world of British children's books.
