Mr Lockhart thought the new bed was just the right size, even if it did look a
bit odd. Jenny’s parents struggled up the stairs with it while she followed.
‘ it’s a bit weird,” she said.
“ I know , “ agreed Dad. “But as soon as I saw it knew it was the kind of bed
you’d like. I thought Jenny’s weird too. She’s bound to like this one.?
“Thanks very much, Dad.” Jenny grinned and pushed a few curls of vivid red hair
from her eyes.
Her parents staggered round the rop of the stairs and finally managed to squeeze
through the doorway into Jenny’s bedroom. She had already cleared a space and it
did not take ling to push the bed snugly against one wall. Everyone stepped back
and gazed at it.
