Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joni Lucas
It's bedtime, and one little girl is trying to prolong her day any way she can--telling her very patient father there are all kinds of horrible, scary bugs and creatures lurking in her room, bathroom and throughout the house as she completes her night-time ritual. As he gently prods her, she warns him about all the dangers she sees such as the spiders with fangs and pointy ears, the duck that runs like "Big Bird on stilts;" the mop that keeps moving and squirting out blue blood; and the prickly porcupine hiding under the pillow. Dad comes to the rescue to save his daughter from all these monsters, and mischievously plays along to her delight. The game ends; the girl is ready to go to bed and drifts peacefully off to sleep. Filled with imagination and humor, this bedtime story has a nice twist in that Dad is a central figure. The large illustrations are fanciful and amusing, but it's the portrayal of a special bond between father and daughter that really makes this book.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 A little girl's active imagination slips into high gear as bedtime approaches. Suddenly, a moth becomes a bat, a mop an octopus, a pair of furry slippers a bear until the bedroom resembles a miniature wild kingdom. The child's father nonchalantly reassures her, viewing her panic as a tactic to delay bedtime. Eventually, he plays along with the frenzy and she must reassure him. The final pictures raise questions about imagination versus reality. The book's charm lies in the unrestrained line-and-wash illustrations that depict common household objects transformed into menacing creatures. Unfortunately, the text isn't as strong as the pictures. While the rhyming verse echoes a child's world, it is too forced and awkward to be truly effective. The narrative flaws keep this title from being a first purchase. Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
