We are the bedside toys.
Do you ever stop to think what we go through,
night after night, while you are sleeping?
Every day they sit as still as stone but at night the bedside team come to life; scaring away bad dreams, squishing the bed bugs flat and even checking for monsters. Itís hard work, but in the morning, when their owner awakes, the bedside toys are richly rewarded. With breathtaking illustrations and poignant text, this wonderfully atmospheric picture book is suffused with magic.
