Simon's New Bed
By Christian Trimmer
Art by Melissa van der Paardt
After a lazy afternoon of watching cat videos, then dog videos, then cat and dog videos, I was inspired to write this harrowing tale of the deep-rooted tension that exists between siblings. Much like Cal and Aron Trask or the daughters of King Lear, Simon and Miss Adora Belle are in a never-ending battle for supremacy. Also, cats stealing dog beds!
Simon's New Bed is actually the second manuscript that I sold but the first to be published.
Melissa van der Paardt provided the brilliant illustrations. Justin Chanda offered his expert editorial advice. Lauren Rille devised the wonderful design.
