From the cover: “Once upon a time there was a little girl called Rosemary who slept in a cot with sides, but she was growing so fast that her feet touched the bottom and her head touched the top. It was clearly time that she had a new bed. Buy me, whispered a funny little bed in the corner of the furniture store — so Rosemary did, and very glad she was too, because this bed knew how to fly! An enchanting little story by an author who really knows the ways of children. They will be entranced by Rosemary’s visits to the seaside, the circus and the gypsy encampment, and last of all her journey with Father Christmas, all in her magic bed. Molly Brett’s imaginative illustrations blend well with the story, making a picture book which will be a firm bedtime favourite.”
