The cover of 'Under the Bed'

There's never been anything scary under the bed since I was born, and there is nothing scary now.

I really believe that.
I keep believing it for about five minutes.
Then I get less sure.

Mum, Dad, Harry and Nana are at their wits' end. How can they prove to Toby that there are no monsters under the bed, so that they can finally get some sleep?

Will a new bicycle help? Or a magic spell? Or does this call for something completely different...?

Under the Bed is a book for younger children by Anne Fine, with illustrations by Matt Robertson. It was first published by Egmont in their Blue Banana series in May 2015 . It has now been reissued as a Level 2 Reading Ladder title, perfect for readers who are growing in confidence and are beginning to enjoy longer stories.
