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? A wonderful new early reader about facing fears as a family, from Anne Fine, a former Children’s Laureate whose awards include the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children’s Book Prize.
