When Ted falls out of bed, three tearaway mice whisk him off on a breathtaking adventure. They zoom around in fast cars, go on a balloon ride and climb a building-block mountain. It's all very exciting, but will Ted ever get back to his bed? One ted Falls Out of Bed's counting theme is woven perfectly into a magical, rhythmic text by the former Children's Laureate and author of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson, and is beautifully illustrated by Anna Currey.
Julia Donaldson is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's best-loved picture books, and was the 2011-2013 UK Children's Laureate.

Anna Currey's warm, classic watercolour style has brought to life many enchanting picture books. Her other work for Macmillan includes Rosie's Hat, also written by Julia Donaldson. Anna was born in Norfolk, grew up in Ireland and now lives near Bath with her husband.
