Apparently based on a tale (or poem) from the Sufi poet Rumi, Grobblechops is a picture book that focuses on familiar nighttime fears of children. Amir’s dad is readying him for bed, but Amir worries that the monster (Grobblechops) may arrive through the night. For a while the two strategize about what Amir can do to get the monster to go away. Ultimately, the best solution is for Amir to share his toys with the creature.

The illustrations are serviceable, but not exceptional. Grobblechops, the monster, is more whimsical than truly frightening. (I don’t think he’d scare little kids. That’s a plus, I suppose.) Really, though, I feel fairly indifferent to this picture book—which appears to be intended to encourage kids to make friends with their fears.

Not being overly familiar with Rumi’s work, I wish a short note about sources had been included. ( )
