Description

"Stella," whispered Sam, "are you sleeping?"

"Yes," answered Stella. "Aren't you?"

Sam can't sleep without his beloved dog, Fred. But where could he be? Sam knows that Fred is afraid of the dark, of the monster that lives in the closet and of the giant toad that lurks downstairs. Luckily, Stella is there to reassure Sam as they search everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Marie-Louise Gay certainly hasn't lost her touch. This delightful articulation of every small child's fear of things that go bump in the night is a witty visual and verbal cupcake...
