Dark Nightby Dorothee De Monfreid
Synopses & Reviews
All is calm in Old Mr. Fookwire's yard until a new neighbor, Little Old Lady Hu, and her cat, Muffins, move in next door. This cat is MEAN. He ambushes the squirrels and ties their tails together. . Mr. Fookwire is upset, but not nearly as upset as the squirrels. They devise a plan to get revenge on Muffins, involving a large bucket full of icy water. Everyone is happy except Fookwire, who is a grump anyway, and Muffins, who will never ever go outdoors again. The amiable foolishness of the text is complemented by the loony, cartoony illustrations.
Witches, spiders, and gremlins! In Jon Davisand#39;s author-illustrator debut, Small Blue is scared of the dark. Can Big Brown help her see the nicer things at night?
When Small Blue wakes up in the middle of the night, she thinks of hungry things . . . and warty things . . . and hairy things! But are they really as scary as they seem? With the help and comfort of Big Brown, Small Blue slowly begins to imagine fun things in the dark instead of scary ones. Jon Davisand#39;s whimsical text and illustrations featuring a sweet father-daughter duo ensure that neither the night nor the unknown will be scary again.

He terrorizes the birds, interrupts Fookwireand#8217;s painting, and ties the squirrelsand#8217; tails together.

In this hilarious follow-up to Those Darn Squirrels!, the tongue-in-cheek text is perfectly complemented by the quirky, inventive illustrations.
