Ella and Penguin Stick Together

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Rosalinde Bonnet. Realizing they can only enjoy their glow-in-the-dark stickers in the dark presents a scary dilemma for Ella and her penguin sidekick. After trying "mostly dark" places (e.g., under umbrellas), they "hold hands," shut the closet door, and are rewarded with brightly glowing stars, moons, planets, and rockets. Playful watercolor and pencil illustrations and gentle humor show readers that facing this common nighttime fear is possible.
