Ering, Timothy Basil The Almost Fearless Hamilton Squidlegger. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2014. $17. Content: G.
Hamilton Squidlegger is afraid of nothing - except bedtime. Hamilton’s dad promises him a delicious, swampy cake - but only if he stays in his own mud puddle all night long. That night Hamilton has a wonderful, mud-filled dream that helps him overcome his final fear. I am a fan of Ering’s art and his very silly picture books. While i don’t think one might of good dreams will cure a fear of the dark, I like his trick of making friends with your fears.
