Blurb:
One night at bedtime Teresa discovers Corky, a furry visitor, in her room.  Corky is no ordinary monster.  In fact he seems just as scared as Teresa.  Teresa soon realizes she must help Corky get home.  But how can she when she's afraid of the dark and Corky is afraid of the light?





Review:
Teresa's Shadow is a picture book about a young girl who is afraid of the dark.  One night Teresa finds a monster in her room.  What should she do?  Teresa must try to face her fear of the dark, while helping her new friend face his fears, so that he can find his way home.

This is a wonderful book that will help children, who are afraid of the dark, realize that not all noises or shadows are something to be afraid of.  The cute illustrations complete this wonderful story.

This sounds like an excellent book for children. I remember my own childhood fears--though it was a long time ago!

I'm impressed how you support other writers here on your blog. I just read the interview with Renee Hand. I'm especially interested with what she's done with marketing. Yes, I know that's crucial and will take a lot of time. But I'm looking forward to it with my own book. I think it will be exciting.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my post, especially since it's been a while since I've come over here to your bright, cheery place.

Hi Susanne .. this seems an excellent book to help children through at an age when they're struggling with things like the dark ..

We had an old cold dark toilet in the back washroom .. and I always thought that Mr Wolf was in the loo .. so used to dash away as soon as I could!! (Red Riding Hood days).

Cheers - love the video .. Hilary

What a neat twist to the "afraid of the dark" story. Children should love the idea that the monster that scares them at night is also afraid of the light.

Thanks for the review, Susanne.

Best of luck with your story, Jennifer.

At first I couldn't figure out why the book was only 16 pages. Then I got it. Yep, sometimes I'm a little slow. ;)

Sounds like a great book.

This sounds like a really great book. So many kids are afraid of the dark.
