Synopsis

Bedtime Monsters by Josh Schneider

Creaking...Squeaking...Gnashing...Glinking...Under the bed, deep in the closet, behind the radiator...the bedtime monsters are stirring, and poor Arnold is too scared to fall asleep. He's powerless to get rid of them - and they don't seem to be more scared of him than he is of them, no matter what his mother says. But even the most terrible, horrible monster has to be afraid of something, as Arnold eventually finds out in this empowering tale of harnessing the imagination and conquering nighttime fears.

Reviews

Schneider is on a roll. Following a Geisel Award for Tales for Very Picky Eaters and a hilarious tale of just deserts in The Meanest Birthday Girl,

Publishers Weekly,

School Library Journal 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.

The funny monster names and the sight of them crowded into Arnold's bed will help get scaredy-cats to read this for the first time, and once they've seen how the story turns out, they will want this worthy successor to Mercer Mayer's classic There's a Nightmare in My Closet read over and over again.

The real show-stealers here are the monsters themselves, who are mildly frightening with their nasty teeth and horrible claws but hilarious in their worried expressions.

A nifty story about the way our imaginations can get the better of us. . .This endearing picture book for 4- to 8-year-olds proves that, among other things, mother is always right.

Praise for Tales for Very Picky Eaters

Portland Book Review Stories with all the wit and good humor parents can often lose during dinner table battles.

Booklist Wholly fresh and unexpected advice.
