'I've cast thousands of spells,' said the witch to her cat. 'I've flown twice round the world and my battery's flat. It's been a long day. I need a good rest. I wonder what kind of a place would be best.' Join the witch and her long-suffering cat, Matt on their search for the best bed in the world. They join badgers in their sets, otters on the sea, birds in the air and bats on trees, but nothing seems quite perfect until they remember their own very comfortable bed!
