Read in January, 1980

This was a favorite bed time read, many years before I ever knew anything else by or about Sylvia Plath. I so wanted one of these magical beds, especially the submarine bed or the snack bed or the flying bed or... well, they're all pretty awesome. Plath even made the hammock sound special and enticing.

B0nnie A lighthearted look at beds - a symbol of innocence, birth, death - from Sylvia Plath!

Steve Sckenda Miriam, I am quite intrigued. I just got done reading Bell Jar and I had no idea that Sylvia Plath wrote children's bedtime stories. Wonderful that she had a lighter side.

Miriam Thank goodness my parents kept our picture books for the grandchildren of I would never have made the connection (i.e. I remember this book but not that it was Plath).
