PreSchool-Grade 1–This new translation of a book published in the U.S. in 1980 offers a fresh perspective on the monster-in-the-room scenario. Peggy insists that there is a crocodile under her bed, but Dad can't find it. Henry turns out to be a playmate rather than a scary creature, showing her how he can get as big or as small as she wants. They have fun in the bathtub, dance, and even create a crocodile out of egg cartons–a perfect craft idea for a program. He ends by telling her a bedtime story about himself, providing a surprising explanation for why he is in her bedroom in the first place. The soft illustrations resonate in tones of earthy greens and gold and support the text with whimsy and humor. This is an additional purchase, especially for libraries that own Mercer Mayer's classics, There's a Nightmare in My Closet (1968) and There's an Alligator under My Bed (1987, both Dial), or Hilary McKay's There's a Dragon Downstairs (S & S, 2005).–Linda M.
