ISBN 0803700385 - Pretty much everyone who was ever a kid has jumped on a bed, and pretty much everyone who's ever been a parent has told them to stop. Then there are those parents who just can't resist pointing out potential consequences, like "One day it'll crash right through the floor."

That's what Walter's father told him. He was wrong - it happened one NIGHT, not one day. In fact, the very night he said it could happen it did. Walter went straight down into Miss Hattie's dining room - then took her along as he crashed through floor after floor, picking up neighbors as they fell, until they reached the basement, where... nah, read it yourself.

Funny, but not exactly flowing text. The illustrations are very nice, cartoonish in the way all of Arnold's books are. Kids will enjoy finding out, the easy way, what could happen if they really DID send their bed crashing through the floor!
