Sylvia Plath is probably known best for her emotionally tumultuous poetry, so it’s hard to imagine that she’s also written The Bed Book for children, a collection of poems about, well, beds.

Her primary audience really, were her own kids. The original British edition came with illustrations by artist Quentin Blake. It’s a really charming read.
