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.

I live with my loving husband, two children and dog in Philadelphia, PA. I discovered my passion for writing in second grade when I had to write a book report for school. I was so excited to write the report, until my mother told me that I had to write about someone else's book and not my own story. I became indignant and decided that once I finished the book report I would most certainly write my own original story. I have been writing ever since! My self-published book Chris Kringle's Cops was a Finalist in The Reader's Favorite Book Contest for 2016. I am so happy to share this story with you. My picture book Kamyla Chung and the Creepy Crawlies was given a 5 Star rating by Reader's Favorite Book Reviews in 2017. View all posts by Ellwyn
