There are a lot of things to be scared of, that’s for sure. There are mean-looking dogs, booming thunderstorms, spiders and other creepy crawly things. All this scary stuff may make you want to hide under your covers and never come out. Hiding is easy, but will it really make everything better?

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Carlson hits just the right note in this story about a little girl who has to choose between facing frightening things or hiding from them. The outside world includes terrors as varied as a mean-looking dog, bad news stories, and nighttime shadows, but since "hiding under your covers can get pretty boring," this wide-eyed, appealing child ventures out and discovers that the world isn't as scary as it seems. Carlson's style works well to address fear without inspiring it-the colors are characteristically bright and jolly, but there are clashing patterns and hues, the lines are slightly more jagged than usual, and the perspective is sometimes askew. Preschoolers are sure to find the protagonist's worried, but not terrified face a comforting focus on the "scary" pages. Perhaps the most chilling moment in the book is on the last page, which reads: "This book was written on September 12, 2001."-Shelley B. Sutherland, Niles Public Library District, IL
