Mr Underbed

By Chris Riddell

A perfect bedtime book for children who are afraid of monsters under their beds, from this multi-award winning artist and former Children's Laureate.

When Mr Underbed keeps him awake at night, shaking the bed and snoring loudly, Jim reaches for his earmuffs... only to get more than he bargained for! Sparking controversy in 2017 when it was compared to the Moz the Monster John Lewis Christmas ad, this classic picture book is the perfect monster under the bed tale, packed to the rafters with humour.

  • Delightfully humorous text, new large format, and fabulous illustrations from this inimitable artist.
  • Sparked controversy in 2017 when it was compared to the Moz the Monster John Lewis Christmas ad.
  • Chris Riddell has won both the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Nestle Children's Book Prize twice, and was Children's Laureate between 2015-2017.
