Kamyla Chung and The Creepy Crawlies is a wonderful story of trying to get children to sleep when they think there are spooky images in their bedroom. Author Ellwyn Autumn has created a bedtime story that all children and parents can relate to. Firstly, Kamyla shouldn’t listen to Joey Jordan, a boy at school who said that creepy crawlies eat people. Since then, Kamyla has trouble sleeping. But she comes up with some ideas for dealing with spooky images. First, she tries putting her head under the blankets and staying absolutely still. The next night, she slept with her stuffed rabbit because she heard that a rabbit’s foot is lucky. The next night, she slept with new nightlight on. I love the store clerk’s quote: “If something in the dark isn’t right, all you need is a little light.” But, they call in an exterminator to get rid of the creepy crawlies. When the bedroom light is on, there are no creepy crawlies until she turns on the nightlight. They lift up stuffed animals and dolls and realize what the creepy crawlies really are! You’ll have to read the book to solve the mystery.

The illustrations by Danh Tran are very well done. Even the nighttime renderings of blue and purple hues are well executed. The tones and emotions on the characters’ faces are very realistic. Kamyla Chung and The Creepy Crawlies provides parents with ideas on how to deal with creepy crawlies—or nighttime shadows. Author Ellwyn Autumn is imaginative and encourages parents to play with stuffed animals to see what their shadows look like. Children 4 to 8—and their parents—will like the repetitive prose and easy-to-relate-to story.

Children’s Author Artie Bennett    

Yesterday I had the good fortune of meeting author Artie Bennett at River Reads, at Prallsville Mills, in Stockton, New Jersey. Mr. Bennett has written several books that will surely delight and educate children of all ages.

Through rhyming verse and lively illustrations, Bennett’s books address topics that children thoroughly enjoy laughing about. Some of his titles include The Butt Book and Poopendous!  


Bennett’s book would be perfect for an ‘All About Me’ theme or a body awareness lesson. Mr. Bennett enjoys visiting schools and libraries, and if his titles are any indication, his visit is sure to be filled with fun and endless giggles.
