Georgie has got a new bed, but it's not like other beds. For each night, Georgie says the magic word and it whisks him away on a fantastic adventure. Georgie loves his bed, but one day he and his family go on holiday, and when they come back, Granny has a big surprise for Georgie.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
When Georgie outgrows his baby bed, he chooses a big second-hand bed that the thrift shop owner tells him is magic. “The lady who had it before said you could travel in it.” Georgie’s granny teases him about his magic bed. But every night, Georgie has a new adventure with tigers or gnomes or pirates in faraway places. Some nights he would swim with dolphins, which is why his bed is sometimes wet in the morning. And when his granny replaces the old relic with a spanking-new bed, Georgie has his revenge.
John Burningham’s playful handling of a child’s imagination and the special relationship a child has with his or her bed makes this a good-night story that children will beg to hear again and again.
