An adorable new character conquers a perennial childhood challenge! Ed plays silly games with Dad. He has a drink and brushes his teeth. He takes a bath and cuddles with Mom for a bedtime story. Then Ed is off to bed with hugs and kisses. But while Ed loves going to bed, he doesn't like staying there. Night after night he tiptoes down the hall and climbs into Mom and Dad's big bed. Mom and Dad aren't getting much sleep so they come up with a plan to keep Ed in his bed. Ed doesn't think much of Mom and Dad's plan—so he comes up with one on his own! Author-illustrator Sebastien Braun offers a charming spin on the perennial challenge of getting children to stay in bed. Young readers will easily sympathize with Ed's bedtime anxieties, and will be delighted with the way the young hero ultimately tames his fears. The uncluttered illustrations, featuring bright, bold colors and simple scenes that focus on the characters and their actions, perfectly complement the simplicity of the story
