These are the creatures that come in the night, to hide in our closets and fill us with fright. Little mouse, Bartholomew Blink, spends happy, carefree days with his friend, Tabitha Fink, a one-eyed cat. They play and nap and scamper about. But when the sun goes down and the dark settles in, Bartholomew begins to worry about what is lurking in the night. A mean, smelly troll who eats stinky socks behind the washer, a dragon with sharp fangs at the end of the hall, an evil witch hiding under the bed … these are the things that fill Bartholomew with dread. How will poor Bartholomew get past his fears?
Even in the dark, and with only one eye, Tabitha Fink can see clearly how to help her friend Bartholomew. When things get a little dark and scary, Tabitha Fink turns into a Ninja at Night, armed with her courage, her good heart and a flashlight. Make friends with your monsters and they won’t seem so scary anymore, Tabitha advises Bartholomew.
Any child who struggles with fear of the dark (and let’s be honest—some grownups too), will appreciate author Rick Felty’s clever, new twist on an age old theme. In addition to dealing with the dark, Ninja at Night teaches children kindness and empathy. “I’ve been there myself. I felt just like you,” Tabitha reassures her friend, Bartholomew. The eye-catching illustrations are precious, and the vivid, earthy colors so pleasing. The assorted “monsters” are scary, but not too scary for little ones—just right. And Tabitha Fink’s heartwarming approach to dealing with them fosters acceptance and inclusion. As in other Felty books, Tabitha Fink, with her one-eye, manages to see through what’s on the outside, right to the heart of each person (or monster).
So kids—when it gets dark, put on your best Ninja pajamas, grab your flashlights and your courage, huddle up under the covers, turn off the lights, and read Tabitha Fink: Ninja at Night. You will be glad you did! Another wonderful Tabitha Fink book. I highly recommend it!

When it’s dark in the house what are some of the things Bartholomew encounters?
What will Tabitha teach Bartholomew?
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. All thoughts & opinions are entirely my own.
A very awesome book cover, great colored pictures, font & writing style. A very well written children’s self-confidence book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great children’s movie, animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

Are sure to give you a fright.
Yet the terrors might not want what you think,
Learn from the night ninja, Tabitha Fink.
My discovery of Rick Felty’s books is a delight. Tabitha Fink, the one-eyed, brown cat, as a character is inspired. As an author of children’s books that rhyme, I regret that it took me so long to find out about the series. He has published one a year since 2015. When given an advance copy (PDF) of Tabitha Fink: Ninja at Night for an honest review, I was excited to learn.
Felty’s most recent work proves that a story told well in rhyme can bring a smile and anticipation even to adults. The unique character modeled after his family pet is pushed into an eerie situation that seems a big deal - to face fear of the dark. Tabitha’s mouse playmate Bartholomew Blink sees a slew of night terrors – a big furry monster, an evil witch, a dragon, some blue bears, and a smelly troll – in the lack of light. Felty’s cyclops hero confronts her friend’s fright as a black-robed ninja with a flashlight.
The smooth word play, and the ability to blend them well with images is reminiscent of works Dr. Seuss or Shel Silverstein. The Ninja at Night dilemma appears so trivial, but Felty, an Emmy-winning television producer, pulls even older readers into the tale with a tug at their memories of childhood frights. I flipped page after page to see Tabitha conquer the dark, and in the charming conclusion felt a child who hears or reads the story will find more than light. As the book ends with Tabitha’s standard, “Bye,” I consoled myself in the hope that next year Felty might give us more.
Tabitha Fink Ninja at Night
Author Rick Felty found a gentle, rhyming way of offering a solution to the common childhood fear of monsters in the night. His protagonist, a one-eyed cat named Tabitha Fink, explains how (he/she?) used to be afraid as well ... until he/she discovered the power of becoming a Ninja at Night.
In the role of Ninja at Night, rather than fight the monsters with force, the Ninja finds a solution to the monster's desire. A snack for the hungry monster hidden in the closet. A bit of duct tape to straighten the witch's hat. A warm sweater and cap for a fire-breathing dragon. Befriending the lonely scary blue bears and finally, a bubble bath for a stinky sock-eating monster.
The illustrations are the neat, computer-generated looking type. There are pages with pictures only.
I can see this being a book which will resonate with some children, thus giving them a way in which to deal with their fears and hopefully overcome them.s That said, if you have a child with the monster-at-night fear, give this book a try.
