Beelzebed is not your typical bedtime story. In fact, it can seem quite scary. Yet children will want it read to them again and again so they can cheer on young Walter Foley as he does battle with his imaginary, mischievous bed and conquers his fears.
Like Walter, young readers will find comfort that the fears of the night are really nothing to worry about. They can sleep peacefully in their own friendly beds, knowing that they are safe and all is well.
