Author(s): Edward Ardizzone
This classic and touching tale by Edward Ardizzone is brought back into print in 2016. One day, Johnny gets out on the wrong side of the bed. His day starts badly and gets worse from there - until he finds a sixpence and decides to turn things around. This wordless story, told only by Ardizzone's trademark cross-hatched illustrations, is a heartwarming story about the very familiar feeling of nothing going your way.
Edward Ardizzone (1900-1979) illustrated over 200 books and was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal for Tim All Alone. He was awarded the CBE in 1971.
