A very active bunny bounces into bed when the moon comes up. But just as he is curled up and ready to sleep, he hears a strange noise! What could be making the creak, creak, CRINCH?

Wonderful little book for themes of going to bed, Halloween and just an all around good dose of reassurance for those heading off to bed.

A slightly scary book about going to bed and wondering what that "scary" noise is coming down the hall! Who's there!!! will delight listeners young and old. Used this for Family Story Time during the 2012 Summer Reading Theme - Dream Big Read.

Cute read-aloud for young kids on the traditional scary-noise theme. Fun sounds to make in the repetitive text bits, mounting suspense and nice resolution.

A young bunny at bedtime imagines lots of different possible monsters that are coming for him. A twist at the end teaches an important lesson about fear.

Very nice illustrations of very cute bunnies. Cute story that may help children who are afraid of the dark.

There is a cutsey-wutsey element that makes the scarey-warey element icky-sticky. Sigh.....
