Fred's Beds by Barbara Samuels


Fred's Beds by Barbara Samuels

Fred can sleep anywhere. He has beds all over the house! When his favourite human, Zelda, throws a birthday party, Fred has other things on his mind. How many places can he curl up and fall asleep in, on, and around? Inside a crinkly shopping bag, on a slightly soggy bath towel, and maybe even around piles of old newspapers. But when Fred gets in trouble with Zelda, he must find a way to get back on her good side - and save her birthday party.


Samuels's art features bright colors and crisp patterns set against white backgrounds, so children can easily find the details that make the book so much fun. - The Horn Book
