The Almost Fearless Hamilton Squidlegger - ADVISABLE

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.
