Japanese Children Enjoy Bedbug Book & Toy

"Night, night, sleep tight..."
The book shipment reached Japan and more pictures have come in of children enjoying the Bedbug book and toy.

What adorable children and it's great to see the merriment on their faces.

Kids in different countries have enjoyed the bedbug toy and as I've related in other posts, "Bedbug" has turned up in unlikely places, such as in a dryer and peeking out at a mother from a clothesline. 

With his posable legs, he can be perched on a bedstead or even on a pillow. One little girl up in Cape Breton took him to bed with her every night and finally, the time came that she needed another bedbug. She had worn out her book and bug!

"Now, this seems like a soft bed..."
The toy is made with child-safe materials and each one is slightly different. Learn more in our FAQs.

Whether these kids enjoy this first book as a humorous bedtime story about a little bug that doesn't want to bite and just wants to "sleep tight" or whether they use the book to learn English as a second language, I hope they will enjoy the story in the months to come.

  • In each story, Bedbug says please
  • Each book has a clue 
♥ A big thank you goes out to the parents for kindly providing these images, which I'm delighted to share with readers.
    Order in Japanese: Japanese-English Bilingual  

    *This Japanese-English bilingual book has also been registered and is available at the NDN, National Diet Library in Japan.

    The recent release of the film version of Where The Wild Things Are is testimony to the fact that a simple concept, if well done, can create a global phenomenon. So it is with the children's book written by Melody Rhodes - The Bedbug Who Wouldn't Bite. Webphemera

    Bilingual Bedbug Book is in Japan

    In my last post, Japanese-English Bilingual News, I mentioned that a book shipment containing the Japanese-English Bilingual version + Bedbug toys was being readied to be sent to Japan.

    The shipment has arrived and the Bedbug Who Wouldn't Bite is now available to Japanese readers who will enjoy it as a bedtime story and/or use it to learn English.

    With "Bedbug's" arrival in Japan, information has begun appearing across online sellers such as Amazon Japan and Japanese sites such as Amelia Network.

    The Bedbug Toy is also available via Amazon Japan.

    Additionally, The Bedbug Who Wouldn't Bite is now available at
    NDL (National Diet Library).

    It is exciting to see book I going out to a larger audience and it is my hope that sleepy little Bedbug, who says please in each story and who chooses not to bite, will strike a chord with and capture the hearts of Japanese readers.

    "Don't jump on the bed, I'm a sleepyhead, and I want to snooze tonight."

    Amazon Author Page

    Bedbug books appear across a number of sites online, and now, my author page has been added at Amazon

    My new author page has been created at Amazon. My Tweets will stream there, as well as posts from this site, so Amazon visitors can stay updated about Bedbug news.

    What I like about Amazon Author Pages is that they include multiple features, such as photos and a listing of all an author's published books available via the Amazon site.

    Authors can also include a feed URL, which means that snippets of their latest posts will also be included. For those with book-related sites, this cross-syncing is a great offering.

    Authors are given an author URL they can post to Facebook and Twitter right from their author page and which they can embed in email signatures.
