Ten In the Bed
Penny Dale's cozy take on a favorite nursery rhyme takes on new charm in a board book edition with an appealing new cover.
"There were ten in the bed and the little one said, 'Roll over, roll over '
So they all rolled over and Hedgehog fell out. . . ."
One by one, nine friends roll over and fall out of a boy's bed with a bang, a thump, or a plop until . . . "I'm cold I miss you " the boy says, and back in the bed they all go. In a sturdy board book begging many repeat readings, Penny Dale's popular rendition of this childhood song is as warm and toasty as a feather bed.
Penny Dale studied ne art and design at Exeter College of Art, and has since worked on community art projects, street theatre props and as a graphic designer. She won the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1990 for Rosie's Babies written by Martin Waddell.
