Under the Bed, Paperback

Under the Bed Paperback

Illustrated by Matt Robertson

Part of the Reading Ladder Level 2 series



Perfect for children learning to read, this is a wonderful story about facing fears as a family from Anne Fine, a former Children's Laureate whose awards include the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Book Prize.

There's never been anything scary under the bed since I was born, and there is nothing scary now.

I really believe that. I keep believing it for about five minutes. Then I get less sure. Mum, Dad, Harry and Nana are at their wits' end. How can they prove to Toby that there are no monsters under the bed, so that they can finally get some sleep?

Will a new bicycle help? Or a magic spell? Or does this call for something completely different...?
