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 a giant giraffe outside on the landing. . . .

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
