Gracie Lou and the Bad Dream Eater by Danielle A. Vann is the delightful story of Gracie Lou who is scared of the Bad Dream Monster that comes to her bedroom every night when she goes to bed. And every night she manages to run out of her room to sleep in between her parents. Gracie Lou's father becomes the Bad Dream Eater to scare away the monster in the room. The Bad Dream Monster comes to Gracie Lou's bedroom that night with another friend, Pink, which - unlike the name - is scary with a long tongue and finger nails. Laney, Gracie Lou's sister, comes up with a plan of having warning posters to keep the monsters out of the bedroom. Will they finally be able to chase away the two monsters from Gracie Lou's room? Will Gracie Lou finally be able to sleep in her room?

Children will love the adventures of Gracie Lou and the two monsters. The illustrations are bright and colorful and they breathe life and movement into the plot and scenes; they also give all the characters a personality of their own. Grandparents and parents can use this as a bedtime story book and it also makes a good story for read aloud sessions in classrooms and libraries. The storyline is very cute, along with the character of Gracie Lou. The Pink Monster, Bad Dream Monster and Bad Dream Eater are very original and will excite kids. I enjoyed reading the book and I am sure all children will enjoy it too.
