Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Grumpy Ned is only happy on Fridays when he can get the Joybaloo to come out from under the bed and play with him. Together, the two have wonderful, magical and fantastical adventures that last the whole night long. Can Ned learn to be happy without his special friend? The answer is a resounding yes in this gloriously inventive and thought provoking story.
