A fantastical take on the well-known rhyme, with a push-button sound that plays the tune of a soft violin. A perfect bedtime lullaby!
The classic rhyme has been beautifully re-created using David Ellwand's wonderful full colour photography. This original version of the rhyme sees the little teddies getting ready for bed and being serenaded by their father on the violin. Bouncing on the bed, they don't want to go to sleep at first, but as their father journeys out to play for the stargazers in the park, we enter a teddy-land of dreams. Teddies fly high in rockets above the earth and on the final spread our teddy heroes are bouncing on the moon
David Ellwand has written and illustrated over 20 children's books since his first, The Big Book of Beautiful Babies, was published in 1995. He won the Booktrust Baby Book Award for Amazing Baby: I Love You. The teddies first starred in Ten in the Bed in 2000 and have gone on to illustrate many first rhymes, including Wheels on the Bus and Old Macdonald has a Farm.
