This is a great story to read to children at bedtime. It validates their fears, yet shows them that there's nothing in the corner after all. It does mention spanking, which could be a turn off to parents, but she doesn't actually get one, and her parents are quite patient with her repeated forays out of her bed. As long as children aren't too susceptible to suggestions of scary things, this book is a fun way to settle down at bedtime.
