...that are illustrated in the children's book Bats at the Library.

The first is a flying bed, and the bat (imitating a character in the book) is saying "no more melted cheese for me, no!"

I found this:

Winsor McCay is an illustrator's illustrator. And I suspect children's book creators in particular love him. "Bats at the Library" is just the latest to pay homage to the man. William Joyce acknowledges Little Nemo in the dedication area of "Santa Calls," a book which includes this image of a galloping bed

Thanks! That's definitely the image I was thinking of.

I actually wrote the author, and the image is indeed from Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend, a collection of cartoons by Winsor McKay.
