Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–A bedtime story with a new twist, told in jaunty rhymed couplets. A boy describes the noises he hears at night, but instead of being frightened by them, he dreams up wild adventures for himself and his teddy bear suggested by the various drips, taps, and creaks. The hiss of the heater is a snake that he has charmed, the vroom of a truck is the roar of his plane, and the boom of thunder becomes the drum roll for his circus trapeze act. The last sound is the SHHH, SHHHHHH of the quiet that puts him to sleep. Instead of a fearful and anxious protagonist, the authors present a boy who handles scary situations with a clever coping strategy. Whatley's spirited acrylic spreads incorporate delightful bits of humor, such as the nervous pet dog that acts as a comic foil to the brave boy. While this tale does not have the calming verse and quiet reassurance of standard bedtime fare, it is a welcome departure from the formula. Pair it with Laura Simms's The Squeaky Door (Random, 1991) for a storytime featuring bumps in the night.–Rachel G. Payne, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

For any kid who is nervous about strange noises when going to bed, this book is a must. It takes all the fear out of the creaks that every kid hears when she lies down to go to sleep. The story is lyrical, fun to read and very creative. My girls both love it and they've now created their own game where they hear a noise and try to imagine what it could be. This makes a wonderful gift too!
