Beautiful Bedtime Book for All Children  Feb 19, 2006
This is a wonderful children's book from Spain. Some people will see the brown skinned boy on the cover and not buy it but it is truly a great book for all kids. It is universal in that it is speaking to the small child afraid of going to sleep alone at night. And who hasn't been at some point in their life?

'Marc had a pink floppy-eared bunny for company but it was not enough to keep fear out of his bedroom. When he screamed for help, his mother came running. And when he said he was sure a giant mosquito was about to bite him, she made him mosquito-proof pajamas and gave him a helmet and a sword.

But alone again in the dark, Marc worried he might fall out of bed. Mom gave him a mountain climbing rope and a parachute.

When he was sure the moon might melt, she fitted him with glow-in-the-dark glasses and sent a letter to the moon forbidding it to melt. And when he knew for absolute certain that a mean wind was going to blow in his face, she hung a sign on the front door that said, "Mean wind, you took the wrong road. Buy yourself a map!"

Even inventive mom was flummoxed by Marc's final, querulous pronouncement: "I think I'm afraid of everything."

There was only one thing to do. Off came Marc's armor, the equipment, the traps and sticks. Away with the letters to the moon and the mean wind. When there were only the two together in the nighttime, close and quiet, mom asked Marc to recount every one of his fears.

"I'll tell you later," he answered through half-closed eyes. "I'm much too tired now."

Keselman's story, originally published in Spain, is perfectly attuned to the bedtime fears of children, as are Villamuza's moody, soft-toned pastels.' - Leigh Fenly, Quest Editor of the Union-Tribune
A wonderfully diverse kid's book featuring characters of color.  Jan 26, 2006
I loved this book! Did you know that out of the 5000 or so books for children published annually, only about 150 feature people of color?! It was wonderful to read this story to my little boy who is the same color as Marc! The story was well done with good pacing that kept both my son and myself interested and the illustrations were absolutely divine! I would love to see a "Marc" series! Thank you Ms. Keselman and Ms. Villamuza for this great book!
