Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Exuberant and self-proclaimed "really happy kid" Katie Honors, the tantrum-thrower from Sometimes I'm Bombaloo, now explains what happens when she gets an attack of night terrors, otherwise known as "the jibberwillies." When her own coping mechanisms don't quite work, her mother comes to the rescue by suggesting she catch the jibberwillies in a bucket. As they refine the strategy together, Katie finds the team approach both calming and empowering. Children (and parents) are certain to pick up that same vibe and will come away with new approaches for facing their own anxieties. Katie's personality leaps off the page via Vail's evocative language ("My friends yell 'Katie! Katie!' as soon as they see me.... I sometimes twirl instead of walking") and Heo's bright and kicky mixed-media compositions. Playful arrangement and coloring of the type and a variety of perspectives and patterns in the art lend a sense of fun and movement to the overall design. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
In the beginning, Katie announces that she is "a really happy kid." She smiles in the mornings before she even opens her eyes, she sometimes twirls instead of walking, and she shares loving cuddles with her family. When night comes, she puts on her soft pajamas, brushes her teeth, and climbs into bed. After kisses and her book, she can sometimes "comfortable herself right to sleep." But not every night. Sometimes, the Jibberwillies come. She tries to deal with them by herself to no avail, so she calls for Mommy. Mom has a solution. She helps Katie put the Jibberwillies in a bucket and toss them out the window. Now, Katie can close her eyes and go to sleep. Brightly colored, cartoonlike illustrations add energy to the story, depicting silly creatures that are more annoying than scary. They are easily banished through the joint efforts of the child and her mother. A comforting bedtime story. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.

PreS-Gr 2

Katie tells readers right from the get-go that she is one happy kid. She loves to play with her friends, cuddle with her parents and little brother, and just twirl through life. That is, until she goes to bed. Most nights she can "comfortable" herself right to sleep, but other nights the Jibberwillies come. This is not a new subject but the treatment here is altogether fresh. In Heo's delightful artwork, the Jibberwillies are not frightening; they are more odd-looking than anything else. Their name might sound shivery but it doesn't conjure up awful ogres hovering over the bed. Katie tries to make them go away but it just doesn't work. Mommy comes in and, with Katie nearby, catches the creatures in a bucket and tosses them out an open window. This acknowledgment of a child's fear and allaying it makes for a positive and reassuring message. Well written and artfully designed, this is a sound choice for any collection. Pair it with Ed Emberley's Go Away, Big Green Monster! (Little, Brown, 2005) to be sure the Jibberwillies are gone for good.-Joan Kindig, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA

Kirkus Reviews

This lively tale offers an ingenious solution to conquering children's nighttime fears. Vivacious Katie Honors welcomes readers into her fun-filled days of play dates and cozy family snuggles. However, even this ebullient youngster can be overcome by the late-night worries that strike when the lights go out. Vail transforms this nebulous angst most children experience at some point into a tribe of mischievous critters called Jibberwillies. When Katie's attempts to chase these gremlins away with good thoughts fail, she calls in the reinforcements: her mom. With bucket in hand, the duo "collect" the troublemakers and promptly toss them out the window. Heo's full-color artwork uses deep and vivid hues to convey Katie's rising anxieties. Her depictions of the Jibberwillies verge on intimidating and intense but effectively serve to validate Katie's—and the reader's—fears. With its clever resolution and understanding tone, this vibrant tale is a terrific antidote to things that go bump in the night. (Picture book. 4-8)
