Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
This 25th anniversary edition of an award winning children's book will win over yet another generation of children and parents with its perennial subject, its tongue in cheek humor and in your face bug-eyed illustrations. Walter, like most kids, can't resist jumping on his bed although his father has warned him against it. Walter lives in an apartment on the top floor, no less, so as Walter jumps higher and higher—you guessed it—Walter and his bed not only fall but go through the floor into Miss Hattie's spaghetti and meatballs, on down into Mr. Matty's aquarium, Aunt Batty's stamp collection, Patty and Natty's block creations, Mr. Hanratty's and together, they all fall into Maestro Ferlingatti's string quartet. Just then Walter opens his eyes. Readers can find out what happens as they peruse the scene stealing illustrations complete with appearances from the original edition of the book. The suspense building text and outrageous illustrations combine to create a winner, again. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.

    What a funny book!

    I purchased this book for my four-year-old grandson for Christmas. The first time I read it to him, he laughed and laughed! He wanted me to read it again and again. The illustrations are wonderful. I am a retired teacher and I am always purchasing books for my grandson so I am thrilled with this book. It is a great addition to his home library!

    Highly recommended

    Tedd Arnold has updated his classic story with illustrations using his now trademark " bug eye " technique. The illustrations are colorful, perfectlybsuited to the story, and endearing. This book is very popular in my school library and is a surefire winner!

    Our 2 year old loves it!

    We were so suprised when this book held the attention of our 2 year old. It's now on our short list of bedtime stories. The other great thing is that it's fun to read! Don't hesitate to get this one.

    Listen to your parents

    Walter does't listen to his dad about jumping on the bed and crashing down through the floors of his apartment building. Each floor has a story of its own and a surprise at the end

    A Dream- or not?

    I cringed the first time I heard 'Three Little Monkey's Jumping on the Bed'- what mom doesn't? Tedd Arnold explores a different scary aspect of bedjumping, probably one that many children who live in old houses or buildings have thought about- What If The Floor Breaks?! In addition, he caters to the voyeur in children. Don't most children wonder what their neighbors do and what their homes are like? Mine do. The illustrations are charmingly blocky- like Lego people. The animals are cuddly. Everyone rhymes. The theme is very funny to little people- Imagine visiting all your neighbors through the floor! Walter is viewed in our household much as an actor is- my children have noticed that he is also Ollie in 'Ollie Forgot'. We like that continuity of players in our books. I know that children have to learn that dreams aren't reality; that 'what happens during the night' is not really something that happens. Interestingly, Tedd Arnold messes with young minds just a little by making them wonder what is reality and what is a dream.
