Given some modeling clay by his concerned mother, he finally succeeds in making a statue of the Something...The clever, ironic story interprets common childhood fears of the dark in a way that should prove highly amusing to many small children."—Starred/Booklist
The Something was made into a short animated film of the same name in 2015.
