When Jim lets the ungainly Mr Underbed join him under the covers, he doesn’t realise that it’s the thin end of the wedge and that there all sorts of other surprising creatures hiding in his room who are in search of a comfortable kip. Jim’s comical expressions range across puzzlement and irritation but one emotion he never expresses is fear, making this quite a reassuring picture book.
