Overview

From a much-loved, award-winning children's illustrator comes a soothing bedtime story with a big, reassuring hug of an ending
 
When Molly wakes up in the middle of the night, she hears the sound of a step on the stairs. It could be a crocodile creeping up to catch her. Or maybe it's a giant giraffe outside on the landing. Or possibly it's an enormous elephant turning the doorknob and opening the door. Perhaps it's even a night monster come to gobble her up. But when Molly surprises the tiptoeing beast, she gets an even bigger surprise of her own!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There is about a score of children's book illustrators nowadays whose draughtsmanship is really distinguished. Chris Wormell is one of them."  —Sunday Times

"What makes this book stand out is Wormell's monochromatic night scenes, which emphasize the darks and lights of the moonlit bedroom. An atmospheric and reassuring tale."  —Bookseller

"There's a three-dimensional quality to the art; holding this book is almost like turning over old-fashioned, chunky alphabet blocks."  —New York Times on Teeth, Tails, and Tentacles

"...gorgeously illustrated and delightfully written." —School Library Journal on Henry and the Fox
