“Just one more game of Hide and Shriek?” begs Little Baby Mummy of his Big Mama Mummy. She relents, Baby hides—but then he gets bored, and goes to look for his mother. One by one, enriched by sound effects, he finds Bones, Glob and Drac in the midst of their bedtime ablutions, who all warn him against the scary creatures of “deep, dark night.” Then—“Help, Mama Mummy! I’m scared!”—his mother finds him just in time to rescue him from a mouse and put him to bed. Manders’s appealingly round mummy child and the text’s rhythmic “clank clink clanks” will find happy audiences. (Picture book. 3-6)
