Every night the boy goes to sleep with his stuffed bunny, but tonight… he has searched and searched and cannot find it! There’s only one place left to look… THE WOODS!
This adorable bedtime story is a hoot to read aloud. As the boy goes further into the woods, the line is repeated “And we weren’t afraid at all. Until…” and the next page provides the perfect opportunity for a fun little fright (and giggles, I am sure) shouting out such things as “we ran into TWO SCARY GIANTS!”
Definitely reminiscent of Where the Wild Things Are , complete with boy in bravery inducing costume and spooky forest, but that is where the similarities end. This is an excellent story on its own with a gentle tale and wonderfully fun full spread illustrations.
Couple this with The Foggy, Foggy Forest by Nick Sharratt for a fun fairy tale woodsy adventure!
