An endearing tale of a boy overcoming his bedtime fears with a little help from Dad -- and the promise of wormcake in the morning.

Hamilton Squidlegger is fearless! Well, almost. During the day he can best all the frackensnappers, skelecragons, and bracklesneeds in the swamp, but at night he quakes in terror. Will his father be able to help Hamilton remain fearless in his own mud all night? Timothy Basil Ering brings his signature energetic touch to this sweet story of father and son.

This book is a gem! The story is so original and the names/characters so cute! My 4 yr old son loved it! The illustrations and writing make it a classic.

Love the page where Hamilton falls into the ship's galley, "where a striped bass stood calmly at a stove, humming sea shanties and cooking pancakes." The striped bass was my favorite part, actually.
