Reviewed by Lynette Fowlston for Readers' Favorite

"Antics in the Attic" by Stephanie J. Corum is a book written especially for the young child to help them face their fears. It seems most children hear things in the night after they go to bed and Zach was no exception. When he hears something scratching around in the attic after he goes to bed his father looks and finds nothing. On still hearing it, he knows there is a monster up there. When his parents finally hear it also his father helps solve the mystery and shows Zach that all is well and he can now go to sleep.

This is a small book, just 32 pages, which would be great for a bedtime story. Geared toward the ages of 3-5 years old the book contains beautiful illustrations by Susan Tater. Dealing with a challenge of animals and humans, the right emphasis placed as the parent reads the book will help to make the story come more alive to the child. As one reads one can also include the children in it as one lets them try and help solve the mystery: what do they think is in the attic? I am sure the child will come up with some surprising answers. I feel that this is a book that will fast become a favorite of your child’s and they will want you to read it over and over. With small children in and out of my house at times and the toddlers at church, I feel I will get a lot of repeat reading on this book. A great gift for parents and grandparents to give for their child’s library.
