Light Fright

Children, who?

Marley has the same morning routine: brushing his teeth, saying good morning to the sun, and hitting the sack. But there is also something that bothers him all the time. He is worried about those children who have troubled him. He can sense them in the attic, under his bed, and inside his closet. But his family denies the existence of a creature called children. Oops! So they don’t?



We picked this book for its cover. It is a monster’s fun take on children. Marley’s discovery and his family’s persistent denial might intrigue readers. However, some younger readers may need adult help to read and comprehend some of the complex words in the book. The rhyme scheme is off in some places. The illustrations are bright and colorful and work well for the storyline.



Light Fright, written by Judy De Young and beautifully illustrated by Nathalie Kranich, is a good Halloween book for children who are fascinated by the world of monsters and love their mischievous adventures.
