School Library JournalPreS—In this sixth tale about Ricky, the bunny decides to spend a hot summer night outside in a tent, as it will be cooler than his bed. This is his first night alone, so both parents separately ask him if he's "brave enough to sleep outside all alone," and he assures them that he's not afraid. Ricky takes his bedding, a flashlight, his superhero cape, and carrots. After entertaining himself with the flashlight until the batteries wear out, he tries to fall asleep. Unfamiliar sounds keep him awake and wary, so he uses two spare carrots to plug his ears, thus making him unaware that his parents have come to check on him. He hears nothing, but sees huge shadows looming over his tent, making him run out screaming about a "night monster." Ricky's parents console him and the child quickly rediscovers his bravery while safely snuggled between them in the tent. There's not much new here, but fans of the previous titles may enjoy another Ricky adventure.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
