So, the story usually starts with ‘There were ten in the bed …’, but oh no, not for this book which begins with, ‘There were none in the bed, on the bed, under the bed, or even overhead”. Then a bunny appears, who wants to play, a bear joins in, a toy soldier and everyone marches across the bed. Spread by spread more and more characters play in, on and under the bed. A raucous, riot of action and silliness ensues! And along the way, children will learn how to count the growing number of characters up to 10.
