A young girl worries that the moon might be sick when it goes missing one winter.

Sensational concept, and shown so well in both text and imagery. A nice touch of magic and wonder that little ones will appreciate. The images inside are standouts, most better in detail than the cover image, which creates an ongoing pleasure of discovery as the book is read. Very enjoyable.  - Judge, Writer’s Digest 22nd Annual Self-Published Book Awards

This isn’t the story that grandpa brings by, this isn’t a book for those kids who might cry.

No mention of princesses, pirates or crooks. But this isn’t a story like most other books.

This is quite different, and quickly you’ll see, how important it is that you listen to me.

For these are the poems about things seldom seen, of things all quite real, not just from bad dreams.

Some that might scare and some that might bite, and other real nasties that wait in the night.

You might already know your “A”s and your “B”s, but I’m here to tell you - you haven’t heard these.

This is an absolutely adorable book. It's not too scary, but just spooky enough. What a great way to present the alphabet! The illustrations are fantastic.  It was a super-fun read! Great job! - Judge, Writer’s Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards
