Picks and Pans Review: Night Lights & Pillow Fights

UPDATED 03/05/1990 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 03/05/1990 at 01:00 AM EST

Guy Gilchrist supplies both the rhymes and the illustrations for this anthology, which stakes out territory somewhere between Lear and Seuss. Here's a sample: "There once was a monster named Clark,/ who scared me each day at the park./ But the park was all right;/ I could play there at night/ 'Cause Clark was afraid of the dark." Then there is the tale of Prince Strong-heart and the Dragon, in which the hero goes on a quest to slay a dragon (so he can impress the princess, of course) and ends up befriending his foe. Everything ends happily, though. Oops, now you know. (Warner Juvenile Books, $12.95—ages 4-8)
