Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-In his ninth appearance, Davy joins his younger siblings in having, then conquering, night fears. Unlike the illustrations in James Stevenson's What's under My Bed? (Greenwillow, 1983) and most other takes on this perennial theme, Tharlet creates authentically creepy color artwork. After five young rabbits, left alone for the evening, put themselves to bed, spooky sounds outside are joined by handlike shadows reaching across the walls, and a menacing face made of moonlight and tree limbs peers in at the window, keeping all eyes wide open. Overcoming his anxiety, Davy responds by marshaling his brothers and sisters to construct a pair of ghost-frightening-and, at the end, parent-startling-rabbit monsters from pillows and broomsticks. Replete with big-eared, soft-looking bunnies and finished off with a cozy family cuddle, this book makes a refreshing alternative for parents (or children, for that matter) who find Mercer Mayer's classic There's a Nightmare in My Closet (Puffin, 1992) too militaristic.-John Peters, New York Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
