Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Children's Story I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I've had the opportunity to read a couple of other books by B.C.R. Fegan, and have loved all of them, so when the opportunity to give this one a read came around, I jumped at the chance. And once again, Fegan does not disappoint.  This book is so much fun. It's a great book for both working with counting and rhymes (my early childhood specialization is coming out, sorry), and I'm so sure that kids will love a silly, strange story such as this. There are so many great things going on in this book, and I can totally see this book being placed in on every preschool bookshelf. The Good Points of Don't Ever Look Behind Door 32: This story is told so well. I read this aloud to my partner, and it was so easy to read and flowed so well. The words and characters and explanations just work together so beautifully, and while I want to know more about all of these rooms, it was just enough to make it work. As always with Fegan's books, the illustrations are beautiful. Lenny Wen did an amazing job of capturing the atmosphere of the story and going above and beyond with the detail and colours.  I liked the ending! There are some reviews I've read saying that it's underwhelming and such, but I thought it was cute and would be an awesome way to bring up topics related to it. The Downsides of Don't Ever Look Behind Door 32: I honestly only have one downside for this book, and it's the fact that I noticed some issues with plurals and possessives in the writing. The way they were written makes sense, because it flows for the poetry aspect, but there were missing apostrophes where one needed to be, which threw me off when I read it aloud. It's a little thing, but it should have been checked (though maybe it was just my copy? I haven't seen anything else being said about this).  All in all, this book is awesome, and I'm so glad to see another Fegan book out in the world. If you and/or your kid likes silly stories, amazing illustrations, or enjoys numbers and counting, you should definitely check out Don't Ever Look Behind Door 32!
