Since Little Eber is too frightened by the thunder and lightning to go to sleep, he climbs into Grandpa Noah and Grandma Nora's cozy bed, but he can't figure out why his hair is so tickly, his toenails so scratchy, and his nose so snuffly, in a visually humorous story that combines the traditional Noah's Ark story with a reassuring bedtime tale.

His rapport with children has led him to work as a primary school teacher, arts workshop leader and home-tutor and this is apparent in his lively ink pictures. He lives in Symondsbury, Dorset. Jim's books for Frances Lincoln are Noah's Bed, Animals Aboard, Seven for a Secret, A Walk in the Wild Woods and The No-No Bird.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2–With the ark finished and the animals loaded, Grandpa Noah and Grandma Nora are ready for a good night's rest. However, Noah promises his young grandson that he can join them in bed if the storm frightens him. Lightning and thunder wake some animals as well as Eber, who creeps through the dark to his grandparents' room. Before long, Noah and Nora are wondering why the boy's toenails are so scratchy and his hair so tickly. Children will recognize the claws, feathers, and other parts of the creatures that sneak under the quilts and disturb the adults' rest. When Noah finally lights the lamp, he finds Eber sleeping peacefully in their bed along with numerous animals. The colorful cartoon illustrations reinforce the story's light tone and are large enough for group sharing. Pair this variation of the story with Jan Brett's On Noah's Ark (Putnam, 2003), another tale about a grandchild's involvement with the ark.–Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
