    Turning late night noises from fear into a creative adventure, a young boy hears the squeek and creak of his bed and this becomes a treasure chest opening wide.The sound of thunder becomes a drum roll as the young boy flies through the air on a trapeze, hanging from his knees.A loud truck whizzing past the house at night becomes a plane that the young boy pilots as he heads down the run way and flies to the sky.A creative book, this tale demonstrates the power of positive thinking and the ability to overcome fears.

    Susan Lubner and I wrote this one! Check it out if you know any children who are afraid of noises at night. It will surely help them ejnoy bedtime and fall fast asleep when the book is done! This book won the Mother's Choice Award in 2006 for Most Creative Picture Book. It was also featured on the Today Show's Best Books for Children segment.

    Night time is a wonderful time to let your imagination have adventures. What a smart and funny little boy. Note, too, that Whatley (as he mentioned in an Artist's Note) added a lot extra to the text, including the sidekick dog and teddy bear. Upon this reread I like the book even more than I did the first time.

    The various noises that keep our little boy up at night take on adventures from snake-charming to plane-flying. Sweet little rhymes help us along on our adventure, and eventually our little one hears the sound of silence and falls asleep. This is a sweet little book, might be nice for a PJ Storytime or to read to your own little one at night. Best for preschoolers.

    Another book that's fun for both of us. He likes finding the bear in each picture. He also likes cuddling up in the big bed with his bear, just like the boy in the story. I've practically got this book memorized.

    This is a beautiful, fun book and a great bedtime story. The child lays awake at night listening to the sounds around him. He is not afraid, but makes each one into an adventure. The vroom vroom of a truck outside is the boy flying an airplane. The tap tap of a branch from the tree outside is the crack of his bat and he hits a home run and the team cheers him on as number one. It's an interesting play on what make some children afraid at night and afraid of the dark - strange noises. But rather than discuss the anxieties and fears and scary monsters they could be, it turns them into something fun and positive and not at all anxiety provoking. I can't wait to read this to my anxious nephew and see if he can use the same tricks to help himself not be as afraid of the dark at bedtime. Will update this review then!

    This is a sweet tale that shows the strategies one little boy uses to alleviate his fears of night noises. The narrative is fun to read aloud and the illustrations are terrific. We enjoyed reading this book together.

    This was a pretty cute little book. It would be fun to do as a story starter for kids- have them make lists of noises at night and then imagine what they could be. Realistic fiction, Poetry, Fantasy?CO: 2005

    The illustrations are excellent. The story, in rhymes, promotes the use of imagination, but also encourages children to pay attention to their senses, and to occupy themselves calmly alone at bedtime until they are ready to sleep.

    A fun read that will help any kid who tends to be afraid of the bumps in the night see those sounds as adventure instead of terror.

    Great bedtime read! Turning your fears into adventures is a fantastic way to tackle this bedtime challenge. Ending with a calm, quiet, sleeping kid helps too!

    This is a great book to read right before bed. I think it helped me - more than Gabe - be less afraid of the dark!
