About the Book
Imaginative, funny, and charming, this is a perfect story for early readers—some of whom may still be waging bedtime battles of their own.
"Go to bed."
Mom eventually wins this argument, but even after her son is all tucked in, his opinion hasn't changed. "Bed is bad," he whispers to his teddy bear. Teddy, however, disagrees. "This bed is GOOD," he says. "This bed can GO." Indeed, with a few alterations, the bed is suddenly mobile—and boy and bear are journeying down the road, out to sea, and ultimately, to outer space, where the boy concludes that this is one bed that's worth fighting for!
