"I'm not going out there," declares the little boy in this hilarious, rhyming story. But what is frightening him? It's not the dragon breathing smoke in the living room. Or the ghost snacking on toast and chocolate in the kitchen. The witches in the bathroom are too busy washing their dirty underwear to bother anyone. And the monsters performing ballet exercises in the bedroom aren't at all terrifying. But something in the house is very scary. And it's coming this way . . . A perfect read-it-aloud book which children will beg to hear again and again.

Paul Bright is a Good Books author.From School Library Journal:
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
