Anything that might seem too big, too dark, or too scary can always be overcome with the comfort of good friends.

In the Woods Summary

In the Woods by Paul Hoppe

When a boy can't find his favorite stuffed bunny, he heads into the woods to find it ...but finds a big, scary brown bear instead! But the boy promises to share his bunny with the bear, and the two forge ahead together, until ...they run into two scary giants! As the boy continues on, he comes across more and more seemingly scary creatures, but finds that--like him--they're just looking for some comfort and security before bedtime. Author/illustrator Paul Hoppe's classic European style is comfortingly familiar while still evoking a fresh, modern twist in this delightfully simple bedtime tale.

In the Woods Reviews

NEW YORK TIMES ONLINE
"Paul Hoppe s The Woods sends its hero out among the trees to search for his lost bedtime bunny. The boy s bedroom quickly gives way, Sendak-style, to the Woods, where the boy confronts and overcomes a parade of scary things. He shares a night light with a fearsome and fearful bear; entertains twin giants with a goodnight story; and gives an achy three-headed dragon a hug. What the story lacks in originality, Hoppe ( Hat, Metal Man ) makes up for with empathy and likability. There s a reason boys enjoy confronting big hairy monsters over and over again. "


SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
"Readers looking for bedtime stories or tales involving sharing, bravery, or overcoming fear of the dark will be pleased with this endearing tale."
