From School Library Journal
Preschool-Grade 3--After being tucked in for the night, a young boy realizes that his room is filled with lots of monsters, including "a long, thin one under [his] bed, eating popcorn" and "one bumping around in [his] closet, doing who knows what." A trip to the kitchen where his parents are eating pie yields a marvelous suggestion: monsters are afraid of ducks, his mother says. Back in his room, a family quacking session sends those scary intruders packing. Bunting's funny solution to an eternal bedtime woe should lead to quacking parties in bedrooms across the country. Bernardin's wacky creatures are appealing in their hideousness. The cheery tones of the illustrations offer comfort to any fearful child. A wonderful addition to bedtime and storyhour collections.
