Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A scary storybook inspires Kipper to go camping in Kipper's Monster by Mick Inkpen, but when the frightened pup drops his flashlight, the image of a tiny snail seems supersized. (May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Kipper's friend Tiger has a new flashlight. As he pans the bedroom, the illustrations show the shadows of owl, hippo, and Kipper's head. Tiger and Kipper decide to go into the woods to spend the night. When they hear a screech from outside the tent, they venture forth to investigate. The flashlight reveals a hole in the tree and two big yellow eyes peering out. The two friends race back to the tent. Kipper says, "I think it was just an owl." Then they see a shadow with horns looming large on the wall. Tiger cowers while Kipper finds the source—a snail. The illustrations are never too scary for the intended audience. Kipper and Tiger are very expressive and friendly-looking. Young children enjoy playing with flashlights and casting shadows. This book, another in a series of stories about the little dog Kipper, will help dispel nighttime fears and lead to discussions on shadows and how their sizes change, as well as discussions of light and dark/day and night. 2002, Red Wagon Books/Harcourt,

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Another Kipper tale that's sure to please young listeners. The pup and his friend Tiger are so eager to try out a new flashlight in the dark that they head to the woods to spend the night in a tent. As Kipper reads from his scary book, "Deep in the middle of the dark, dark wood, there lived a horrible-," the two are frightened first by the screech of an owl and then by a terrifying shadow on the tent. While Tiger squeals in alarm, brave Kipper investigates, only to find that the shadow was caused by the flashlight shining on a small snail. They go home and read the rest of the story, safely ensconced in Tiger's bedroom. Bright, simple illustrations surrounded by plenty of white space give the book a light, airy, uncomplicated quality. Children will relate to the animals' fear and will share in their relief. A good choice for storyhours.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Inkpen's Kipper is gladsome enough that it is never a problem to have him around, and Inkpen has such a light touch he never feels intrusive, but this contribution to things that go bump in the night feels awfully timeworn. Kipper's friend Tiger (who is actually a dog) has a brand-new flashlight. It does all sorts of neat things in the dark, and it is not long before Tiger thinks it might be good fun to camp out in the woods, where it will be "really, really dark." Well, it sounds good in the middle of the day, but Tiger soon discovers that night can get really, really, really dark, with lots of creepy sounds as well. Add to that scenario some scary reflections, and you have reason enough to set the tent up in Tiger's bedroom and give the woods back to the night. Though both Kipper and Tiger learn the sources of their fears, and hence dispel the boogies for the young reader, there is none of Inkpen's usual unconventional slant, nothing to recommend this version of the scared-of-the-dark tale over scores of others. Except, of course, that it's Kipper. (Picture book. 3-7)
