About the Author
Praise For The Woods…
"Paul Hoppe's "The Woods" sends its hero out among the trees to search for his lost bedtime bunny. The boy's bedroom quickly gives way, Sendak-style, to the Woods, where the boy confronts and overcomes a parade of scary things. He shares a night light with a fearsome and fearful bear; entertains twin giants with a goodnight story; and gives an achy three-headed dragon a hug.
What the story lacks in originality, Hoppe ("Hat," "Metal Man") makes up for with empathy and likability. There's a reason boys enjoy confronting big hairy monsters over and over again. " - The New York Times
"Readers looking for bedtime stories or tales involving sharing, bravery, or overcoming fear of the dark will be pleased with this endearing tale." - School Library Journal
