Praise for The Pirate’s Bed:
“What sets The Pirate’s Bed apart from other tales of its ilk is the main character – the bed itself…Winstanley crafts the mood of this bed-time story through careful word choice. At times she evokes the feeling of being lulled to sleep – prominent ‘l’ sounds resonate and the rhythm of verbs..mimic the rocking boat…Matt James’s acrylic paint and India ink illustrations playfully and artfully reflect Winstanley’s text…James also has an impressive ability to convey the emotional journey of the secret-laden bed, especially through its bedpost eyes. This unique viewpoint, both in narrative and art, makes The Pirate’s Bed charming and memorable.” – Quill & Quire
