Adorable book that shows just how much the imagination plays havoc in the dark while Robin James does a great job of making those night-time monsters so graphic looking that you can agree with Buttermilk. And I love the idea how her father doesn't only comforts her but takes her out the next day to see what the actual monsters were. Loved the little dragon under the willow tree :)

Definitely one of the best..... ( )

Buttermilk, a bunny, races home through the nighttime forest in a panic as she barely evades a dragon, a hungry bear and other terrible creatures. Dad takes her out the next day and shows her that all the frightening creatures were just her imagination building on the nighttime shadows and noises.

These Serendipity books are brilliant and this is especially well done. When we first got this from the library my almost-4-year-old daughter requested it over and over. I think it struck a nerve. ( )
