For the under-fives, a poignant and powerful picture book about homelessness and everyone's need for friendship, with stunning, fantastical illustrations from award-winning cartoonist, Chris Riddell. The same award-winning team created Something Else, winner of the UNESCO award.
Jack hates tidying up and shoves everything under the bed where, unbeknownest to him, it all fizzles and sizzles and creates a wonderful creature called Horatio. Horatio is a natural leader and gathers all the lost and lonely creatures of the room under the bed - where they create their own world - with rivers, and cities and a place for everyone. But what will happen to Horatio once Jack's mother discovers what is under the bed?
