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.

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.
