"A story about caring for the unseen and the power of books to unite and soothe....Will have young readers eagerly wondering about what goes bump in the night."--Kirkus
"Sterer gives winning warmth to this faintly haunted readaloud celebration in verse....the horde of finely textured creatures in night-time colors by Santoso clamor to hear the story."--Publishers Weekly
"For Halloween or whenever a child wants a delicious scare."--Booklist
"The child takes control as leader and reader, which alleviates scariness, and the atmospheric full-bleed illustrations, done digitally combined with handmade pencil textures, make even a swarm of supernatural beings feel just cheerful enough."--The Horn Book
