It's Bedtime!

(4) PS Translated by Kathryn Grell. Illustrated by Alan Marks. Pale, soft illustrations show young Ben refusing his mother's offer of a series of bed buddies: cuddly stuffed animals and even a live dog. His choice--a terrible stuffed devil--stands out in red, green, and brown, complete with pointed tail. Ben chooses the devil to "scare away the ghosts and monsters and keep [him] safe." Although it's abrupt, the unexpected ending gives this bland story a lift.
