A classic bedtime storybook. There were ten in the bed and the little one said, "Let's play!" So they did in this second delightful story about their bedtime games. They played pirates, flying and dancing, ghosts and monster ...and what a time they had! As well as being great fun, this is a useful early maths book, offering children possibilities of counting, adding, subtracting and dividing.

A bedtime fantasy about a tousled little boy, dressed in red sleepers, and the nine stuffed animals who play imaginative games with him (``TRAINS!'' ``PIRATES!'' ``GHOSTS!'') until, one by one, they fall asleep. Like ``Ten in a Bed,'' the story provides a good exercise in reverse counting and prediction for preschoolers. The author's whimsical colored-pencil-and-watercolor art is filled with humorous details: a rabbit eating a carrot sandwich; a scene (``Let's play ACTING!'') from The Nutcracker, with a crocodile in the title role; or, on the pirate ship, a sheep-and-crossbones flag.
