Timothy would like to go to sleep at bedtime but everything keeps talking and the noise keeps him awake. The basin talked to the pitcher, while the Statue of the Infant told everyone of Timothy's secrets. The mop and the curtains had something to say and the General in the picture frame kept shouting commands.
