Creak! Said the Bed

By Phyllis Root
Illustrated by Regan Dunnick

“The cozy, humorous story is guaranteed to invite giggling kids into their parents’ beds.” — Kirkus Reviews

On a stormy night in a little house, only Papa keeps snoring away—snurkle, snark—unaware of the wild weather outside and the growing number of nervous bedmates within. Can nothing wake him? Creak! says the bed. . . . With a cumulative series of comical events, this delightful story sends readers barreling toward bedlam.

  • Another strong read-aloud - featuring repetition, pattern, and sound effects - from one of Candlewick's premier picture book writers.
  • A cumulative comedy that will engage young readers in anticipation of the approaching calamity.
  • The illustrations by Regan Dunnick are suitably exaggerated and outrageously silly.
