Under the Bed

This was the first picture book I had published, and it’s one of my favourites. I tried lots of different versions of stories about things under the bed – long stories and short stories, and funny stories and scary stories. In the end I wrote this one about all the different bugs and beasts and animals living under the bed, including a not-very brave monster who sucks his thumb, and is scared of …. I wonder what?

Under the Bed was given a Silver Award by Practical Pre-School Magazine in 2003.
