Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K–Arnold knows he has nothing more to be afraid of at bedtime after the winged fargle, the horrible tooth gnasher, the grozny buzzler, and other monsters with their own fears crawl into his bed. These colorful figures lurk in the darkest corners of bedrooms, but, as Arnold discovers, the scary creatures have more in common with him than he could have imagined. Seeing these silly-looking beasties jumping at noises and hiding under the covers will help dispel any fears children may have about their own made-up critters. Arnold's playful imagination is evident in Schneider's watercolor, pen-and-ink, and colored pencil illustrations, and his bravery becomes obvious when he investigates the noises he hears in the night. Use this book for discussions about facing fears.–Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canadaα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist

We meet Arnold as he is crashing through his toys—or, as he sees it, “destroying New York.” In a neat flourish, Schneider depicts Arnold’s imagination with blue outlines: his little-boy body is outlined by a Godzillalike beast, and those falling blocks are outlined by skyscrapers. The giddy destruction ends at bedtime, when from the closet crawls the “toe biter” that Arnold fears. But the purple, tusked goblin is just there to hide from the truly awful “tooth gnasher,” who shows up worried about the hideous “winged fargle.” You get the picture. Soon Arnold is sharing his too-small bed with an array of colorful, fretful monsters. It comes to a head when the “grozny buzzler” shows up, wondering if anyone has seen signs of the nefarious “Arnolds.” Says the buzzler, “I heard one destroyed New York.” Indeed, it’s a snappy way to drive home a good-natured lesson in incorrect assumptions. Schneider’s watercolor creatures are a darling array of beaked, winged, clawed, and blubbered goofballs, supporting the text with just the right brand of off-center quirk. Preschool-Grade 2. --Daniel Kraus
