Beautifully told with gentle humour and delightful illustrations. - WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLYA fun and reassuring tale that introduces children to light and shadows - Junior
PreS-K-Another Kipper tale that's sure to please young listeners. The pup and his friend Tiger are so eager to try out a new flashlight in the dark that they head to the woods to spend the night in a tent. As Kipper reads from his scary book, "Deep in the middle of the dark, dark wood, there lived a horrible-," the two are frightened first by the screech of an owl and then by a terrifying shadow on the tent. While Tiger squeals in alarm, brave Kipper investigates, only to find that the shadow was caused by the flashlight shining on a small snail. They go home and read the rest of the story, safely ensconced in Tiger's bedroom. Bright, simple illustrations surrounded by plenty of white space give the book a light, airy, uncomplicated quality. Children will relate to the animals' fear and will share in their relief. A good choice for storyhours.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
