Fear of the dark and the unknown drive this storyline. Mystery surrounds what the "monster" might be. It is very funny that with each new friend that comes along, the "monster" develops new characteristics! This book was very cleverly written and had equally engaging artwork. The illustrator's use of oil painting brought the book to life. This was a big book with big, full pictures. Very nice.

This book is a good example of fantasy because it is a story about a group of characters learning about shadows for the first time, but these characters are animals making it unrealistic.

Review: This is the story of pond animals who are essentially afraid of their own shadows. It is a fantasy because the animals take on human characteristics, such as talking. ( )

This book discusses how being scared about monsters is silly, and how imagination can play with our minds. This is a good topic to discuss with kids because they often get scared easily over nothing. ( )
