"This dynamic author-illustrator team have produced a visually and emotionally striking picture book. Sarah Ellis' use of language is simple yet poignant. LaFave's use of bold colour and shapes creates images that leap off the pages, immediately captivating the reader.
"Few books deal so well with the issue of sleeping over night and the basic fears associated with this common practice. Ellis and LaFave show, with elegant simplicity, how a few clever ideas can help a child overcome his fears and "be" anything he wants."
-- CM Magazine
"LaFave's bright, striking illustrations have black outlines and capture the exuberance of pretended play. . . The child-centred text makes this perfect for discussions of night time separation worries."
-- School Library Journal
"Familiar characters and a strangely common dilemma for many young children, this fine book allows them a chance to talk about their fears, and compare how Ben feels to what they also feel when they are in unfamiliar surroundings. "
-- Brandon Sun
"As with her first Ben book, Ellis shows her empathetic understanding of a preschooler's worldview. And illustrator Kim LaFave shows their vibrant energy."
