Suzy Sue cannot sleep; this is due to the various farm animals also occupying her bed. She must persuade her furry pals to go back to their own beds in the barn. Mij Kelly and Mary McQuillan have done a great job with `Bed' on many levels. Firstly, the story itself is a simple one, but great fun. There is added pleasure in the fact that the entire book is written in rhyming couplets, to be able to do this and still make a coherent story is testament to Kelly and McQuillan's skills. The highlights do not end with just the words; the illustrations are also very good.
Suzy Sue herself is a little bundle of energy, but it is the various farmyard animals that steal all the giggles - I particularly like the horse with a penchant for stuffed animals and the goat with reading glasses. Whilst the main character look great, Kelly and McQuillan has not forgotten the background, the book is full of little surprises for curious eyes to find. `A Bed of My own' is a fun book with high quality writing and great imagery, I for one enjoyed reading it, never mind kids!
'A Bed of Your Own' follows the adventures of Susie Sue, a little girl who attempts to go to bed only to find she's sharing with a whole host of little animals and they're so uncomfortable none of them can go to sleep. Susie Sue leads each animal back to its own bed explaining on the way that sleeping in your own bed is really the best idea but; once they're all settled it's Susie Sue who is out of bed. The animals return the favour and once back in her own bed the little girl is snuggly, warm and safe and soon falls asleep.
Lovely little story with a message for very young children that their own bed is the best place to sleep. The final page affirms that idea with "...Susie Sue asleep in her own bed - AS YOU SHOULD BE TOO...".
Beautifully illustrated and a book we bought for our first granddaughter and then used later on with her little brother. They both loved the story of Susie Sue and so did we. Highly recommended.
