“The distinctive artwork sets Harkness' picture book apart. . . . Sure to soothe anyone who's ever fretted about what's out there in the dark.” ―Kirkus Reviews
"Harkness' artistry is impeccable. Every page is a masterpiece of multidimensional detail. . . . Mesmerizingly original." ―Booklist Online
"The book's hallmark is its art, which seems to exist in three alluringly lumpy, bumpy dimensions. . . .The candy-colored 'clay' imagery blazes against nighttime blacks and browns, and the shaggy, galumphing monsters set off the cuddlesome rabbits, who would look at home in a child's bedroom, where this book will likely get much play." ―Shelf Awareness
