Book Review - The Almost Fearless Hamilton Squidlegger
About the Book
An endearing tale of a boy overcoming his bedtime fears with a little help from Dad — and the promise of wormcake in the morning.
Hamilton Squidlegger is fearless! Well, almost. During the day he can best all the frackensnappers, skelecragons, and bracklesneeds in the swamp, but at night he quakes in terror. Will his father be able to help Hamilton remain fearless in his own mud all night? Timothy Basil Ering brings his signature energetic touch to this sweet story of father and son.
My Take on the Book
Timothy Basil Ering has a wonderful imagination and created a book that is fun to read. The illustrations are full of color and imaginative creatures besides Hamilton the frog. If you have a child who may be afraid to sleep at night and it is a real challenge putting him/her to bed, I believe this book is for you and your child.
Do you know what a fire-breathing frackensnapper is? Have you ever seen a bracklesneed or skelecraqgon? Well you will in this book and delight with the shapes and amusing facial expressions as Hamilton becomes fearless with each one.
So what do Hamilton's parents finally "bribe" him with to sleep in his own mud ? Why what else would a little frog enjoy eating for breakfast, his favorite cake: a double-decker grasshopper worm cake with snake belly frosting.
You will enjoy this story over and over again!
