This is a story about a little boy name Spike who is afraid of monsters at night. He is ashamed of this as he feels that he is too old to be scared at night. Throughout the book, it shows how Spike slowly understands and gets over his fears of monsters. The monsters happen to be his shadow at night.I really enjoyed this book as the story used to help Spike with his fears is thought a Hindi festival ¿ Divali ¿ and the story about how the festival came about. Spike¿s teacher used shadow puppets to present the story, which help Spike understand his fears. The use of the Hindi story was unusual and refreshing. It has a activity section in the back of the book that shows how to make shadow puppets. I would definitely recommend this book for school and for home reading.
