It’s morning, and Harry, like many of us, would like to stay in bed just a few minutes longer. But this morning, Harry’s mother wants him to come down to the kitchen right awayshe has a surprise for him. But what could it be? Fairy-tale breakfast guests? A dinosaur? Aliens? Maybe an earthquake, a fire, or a flood? What would it take to get this sleepyhead out of bed? Harry imagines one fantastic scene after another until he finally bounds down the stairs, bat in hand, to save the day.
Seymour Chwast’s zany illustrations are the perfect complement to Harry’s wild imagination.
