I love this cute book! It’s perfect for little kids because it isn’t scary. It might help to assure children that there is nothing to really be afraid of, but sometimes it’s fun to pretend to be scared. The illustrations are bright and expressive, bringing a lot of humor to the story. I love the crayon art style, and the cute background characters. – Books for MKs
