"When the lights are off
And the stars are out,
Only shadows move about"
When Nicky goes to bed, the familiar objects in his room start to take on scary new shapes. Is that a creepy, crawly snake at the end of the bed? Is there a tall, dark stranger standing by door?
Don't worry! The snake is only Nicky's sock and the menacing figure is just his robe hanging on the back of the bedroom door. If you have ever thought there might be someone hiding in your closet or peculiar things underneath the bed, this gentle little book will comfort you and take away all those night-time fears.
"But do not fear
For they'll be gone,
When the switch is turned
And the lights are on"

About the Author:


ANNELISE TAYLOR lives in Surrey, England. This is her first children's book.

From Publishers Weekly:

In the dark there is fear, illusion and uncertainty, but all this can be cured by the power and benevolence of light. Little Nicky is afraid of the shadows that roam his bedrooma stranger by the door, a huge spider above the chair, a four-eyed furry head under his bed. But when he switches on the light, he sees things as they really are, and the menacing shadows are vanquished. A serviceable approach to a familiar theme, Taylor's text consists of simple rhyming lines, with the additional hint that victory over the powers of darkness is only as distant as the light switch. The illustrations highlight the contrast between the two regions: objects immersed in darkness are blotted in spills of shadowy watercolor; they become crystal-clear in the glow of a light bulb. Ages 3-7.
