The Wrong Side of the Bed



The Wrong Side of the Bed 
Written by Lisa M. Bakos

P. G. Putnam’s Sons, 2016. Picture Book.

Lucy woke up on the wrong side of the bed. She could only find one bunny slipper. That was the beginning of a series of negative occurrences on her “one bunny slipper” kind of day. All of her animal friends-- from a porcupine who wants to cuddle to penguins who want to make their own bubbles in the bath—just add to her problems. Luckily, when Lucy wakes up on the wrong side of the bed the next day, the day takes a different course.

Sentence adverbs such as unfortunately and obviously introduce each new entry into an ever-increasing list of mishaps that define Lucy’s bad day in this wacky cumulative tale that will delight young children—especially when they hear adults try to complete the full list of mishaps in one breath!
