Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Like Izzy in Neubecker's Wow! City!, the unnamed heroine of this ebullient bedtime book is full of toddler enthusiasm. "The evening's come, I hear a roar,/ it's time to catch my dinosaur," announces the girl's father as bright pen-and-ink and watercolor wash drawings trace the shenanigans of his would-be beast in full imaginative regalia. On each succeeding page, Neubecker minimizes the father's participation and highlights the girl's plethora of expressions and costumes. She's delighted, startled, demure, amazed, and on each page she morphs into a different creature. She scrubs her feet, "all thirty-three," as she pretends to be a sea monster bathing. "Shampoo your beasty mane of glory," says the father, "soon we will read a bedtime story!" (alas, no illustration shows the girl and her father reading). Neubecker's imaginative bestiary is toddler-savvy; the creatures appear more like fantastical masquerade costumes than scary beasts. The girl brushes her teeth (she sees a toothsome monster in the mirror), gets tucked in (her bed brims with stuffed animal beasts), and finally, her father's hand turns out the lamp as readers see the girl heroine for the first time, snuggling on her pillow. Neubecker carries the fun one step further by showing green jungle grass creeping around the girl's bed, thus presaging the final image of the girl asleep like a puppy in a litter full of beasts. An inventive bedtime romp. Ages 3-6. (Oct.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Here is a twist for children who fear things that go bump in the night. This author writes a rollicking, rhyming bed-prep with images of the young child appearing in monster guise. As the child proceeds through bedtime prep, the pictures show the child with everything from a lion's mane to claws and horns, each silly part being polished, brushed, cleaned, and read to until the youngster is at least a sweet, sleeping little child. Whether a child's path is eased by predictability, silliness, or the possibility that monster children have the same issues, this book wins on all levels. 2005, Orchard/Scholastic, Ages 3 to 5.
—Susie Wilde
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-It's bath time and the chase is on: "The evening's come, I hear a roar,/it's time to catch my dinosaur." Once the wild child is caught, it is time to clean up and settle down. Horns and claws are polished, fangs are brushed, the wee beasty is tucked in with a pile of stuffed toys, and it's off to dreamland. Parents having trouble with bath- and bedtime may find this interlude the perfect way to settle their own wild beasts. Plentiful white space shows off the illustrations well for storytime. The youngster and her antics are portrayed in colorful, playful, and imaginative watercolor-and-ink cartoon illustrations. Fans of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are (HarperCollins, 1988) might see some resemblance in the beasts and dream jungle at book's end. Pair the two titles for a fine beastly bedtime romp.-Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A loving mother catches her beast for the start of a beloved bedtime ritual. Into the bath the boy goes, washing all his parts, shampooing and shining. Throughout it all, he changes into various beasts-dinosaur, pterodactyl, Loch Ness, lion. The routine continues as he dries off, cleans his "fangs" and gets tucked into bed surrounded by stuffed versions of the creatures he's been imitating. The final spread pictures him asleep in a jungle with all his beasty friends, while his mother sends him off to slumber: "The jungle is quiet, all is at peace, / good night, sleep tight, my sweet / little beast." The rhythm of the rhyming couplets is perfect for a bedtime read-aloud, while the illustrations provide a chance for pretending. (Picture book. 3-7)
