Kindergarten-Grade 2–In this rhyming tale with a twist, a boy is hiding under his bed and refuses to come out. Each page introduces new and frightening creatures (witches, a ghost, monsters) and concludes with the refrain that this particular creature is not the reason that I'm not going out there! The verse seems forced at times. There's a dragon breathing smoke,/Who looks far too fierce to stroke,/And his eyes have got a scary sort of stare./I hope he doesn't stay,/But he's not what makes me say…. Even the various creatures are frightened and join the narrator under the bed when confronted by a far scarier being–his sister, Kate, who is furious that he put a spider in her shoe. The bold and colorful illustrations are sure to entertain children, who will enjoy joining in on the refrain. Pair this with Lauren Child's I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato (Candlewick, 2000) and John Wallace's Monster Toddler (Hyperion, 2003) for a sibling theme.–Maren Ostergard, Bellevue Regional Library, WA
