In this heartwarming title from the Piggy and Bunny picture book series, the two friends explore what scares them as they prepare for their first campout together. When Bunny admits to being frightened of monsters, Piggy responds that ?even if there WAS a monster, I wouldn't scream like you!? When Bunny asks, ?What if the monster GROWLS at you?? Piggy answers, ?PWAAT! I can be loud, too!? Then, one by one, all of Bunny's questions about what to do if a monster came near are countered confidently by Piggy. Soon Bunny begins to feel differently about monsters, and says, ?I can even turn off the light and wish that monster goodnight!? To which Piggy then admits, ?NOOO!! I'm a wee bit scared of the dark.?

With Bunny on the left-facing page of every spread and Piggy on the right, the two create a rhythmic back-and-forth that is soothing yet fun. What Piggy and Bunny learn together is that everyone gets frightened sometimes, and having a good friend nearby is the perfect antidote. Children will appreciate that neither of them makes fun of the other's fears, and instead they find ways to comfort and reassure each other. With soft, gentle artwork and deceptively simple text, award-winning author-illustrator Geneviève Côtè has crafted a beautiful picture book that will be a regular favorite at storytime. This would also be a perfect title to begin classroom discussions about emotions, particularly fear, and how to identify, manage and express them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from And things that go bump in the night.... This is the fourth book in this adorable series starring Piggy and Bunny, two very good friends who share life together. This book tells us about their first campout experience and the anxieties and fears that surround such an epic event. Bunny patiently awaits Piggy return in the dark of the night. When he looks up he sees a scary shadow approaching that is projected on the side of their pup tent. Bunny shouts out "EEEKK!!" To his relief he finds out it is his friend Piggy returning back to camp carrying a lantern and a stick. They begin discussing Bunny's reaction and Piggy becomes all puffed up and says he wouldn't be scared and scream like Bunny even if it was a monster. As the conversation progresses and its time to blow out the lantern and snuggle into bed a secret is revealed by Piggy of what he fears most. The friends do not judge or mock or laugh at each other but come to the conclusion they both have things they fear and they will face those fears together and be there for each other no matter what. Now that is true friendship isn't it? The illustrations are charming and you just fall in love with the two little characters. They are both so innocent and sweet as they try to figure out and enjoy the journey they are on together doing life. Highly, highly recommended. If you are unaware of this series please make it a priority to check it out.
