Ten in the Bed by Ms. Penny Dale

A beautiful 25th anniversary edition of a bedtime favourite, this is Penny Dale's warm, funny and much-loved take on the bouncy bedtime rhyme of 'Ten in the Bed'. With ten in the bed, it's a bit of a squeeze! Roll over, roll over! But the little one gets cold all alone, and soon all ten are snuggled up and fast asleep. Children will love reading this famous rhyme and shouting out the crash, thud and bump noises - bedtime has never been such fun!


A subtle variation on the traditional nursery song, illustrated with wonderfully warm pictures which are crammed with amusing details Practical Parenting Very young children will love exploring the detailed pictures and sounding the different noises each animal makes when falling out of the bed.
