The young hero of There's a Nightmare in My Closet returns, now a couple of years older. He is annoyed by that perennial childhood fantasy--an alligator under his bed. He resolves his problem by luring the alligator into the garage. His final action is to leave a note for his father, so he will be cautious when getting the car. As in the earlier title, the child masters his fear and appears completely in charge. The droll, vigorous color illustrations carry the action along in an amusing, spirited fashion. The style is reminiscent of Nightmare without being repetitious. This book should be enjoyed by children as much as its predecessor; it will help them conquer another nighttime fear. An excellent companion for a popular classic.
