Best-selling author Robert Munsch has created this humorous story about Amy, a little girl reluctant to get out of bed, even when her mother stands her on her feet!
What will get sleepy Amy out of bed? Not her brother's yell. Not her father's stern command. Not even her mother's trick of standing Amy up on her feet! So they do the only thing they can--they tuck her back into bed! Amy's father picks up one end of the bed and Amy's mother and brother pick up the other. They lug it out the door, down the street, around the corner, through the school yard, and into the school. Amy's classmates spend the entire day trying to get sleeping Amy through her school activities.

ROBERT MUNSCH is the author of the best-selling Smelly Socks, Boo!, Munsch More! A Robert Munsch Collection and The Sandcastle Contest. His stories are beloved by children, parents, teachers and booksellers alike, because he writes about real issues in funny terms.From Publishers Weekly:
Opening with a slice-of-life scenario?Amy stays up till the wee morning hours watching TV and then cannot wake up for school?this paper-over-board book by the author of Love You Forever takes a preposterous twist. Amy's brother, father and mother, unable to rouse the sleepyhead and unable to stay home with her, carry her bed to school and deposit it (and her) in her classroom. The Daniels, who previously collaborated with Munsch for Good Families Don't, squeeze the humor out of this outlandish situation with rowdy cartoon pictures populated by near-caricatures. As the Daniels have it, Amy's classmates pile onto her bed during reading period (each with a copy of this book, opened to the very page its readers are on); use her as a table at lunch and as home plate during a recess ball game; and paint designs on her headboard, pillows and face in art class. After bounding out of bed the next day, the well-rested gal arrives at school to discover that her classroom is filled with beds, hammocks and sleeping bags... all inhabited by kids, a sight to which the illustrators do comic justice. This light book may not be one youngsters will feel compelled to return to repeatedly, yet it is punchy slapstick fun. Ages 3-6.
