Synopsis

Simon's New Bed by Christian Trimmer

Simon's been looking forward to trying out his brand-new dog bed all day. He may be ready for the best nap of his life, but Miss Adora Belle the cat has other ideas. She's taken over his bed before he even gets a chance to try it-and she's not budging. As Simon struggles to find a way to free his bed for the Greatest Naptime Ever, he may just discover something wonderful about his new bed: there's plenty of room for two.

Reviews

The digitally rendered illustrations of this cat and dog duo are spot-on...Their compromise adds a lesson without being heavy-handed, and the story will delight those with either species as a pet. -- Booklist September 2015 Readers with multiple pets or siblings will easily relate to the territorial disputes and applaud Simon's capacity for sharing. -- School Library Journal July 2015

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
