Creak! Said the Bed

author: Phyllis Root
illustrator: Regan Dunnick

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.

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

author’s comments:
Phyllis Root, author of many books for children, exhibits a range many writers would envy. Her counting book Ten Sleepy Sheep is as serene and lulling as One Duck Stuck is rambunctious, and her down-home creation myth Big Momma Makes the World won the prestigious Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. She lives in Minneapolis.
illustrator’s comments:
Regan Dunnick has received numerous medals and awards for his illustrations, and some of his works are in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress. He lives in Osprey, Florida.
