I remember when I was little and my mother or father would come into my room at night and read me a story. The stories children hear at night bonds them with their parents and calms them to sleep while also encouraging them to get involved with books and reading. These stories, although fictional, still had a good purpose.

The short story, Guide to Seldom Seen Animals by Bob Frey, reminds me of those sentimental stories I heard as a kid. It describes disturbances, such as losing keys or hearing noises in a car, by saying that some mysterious, seldom seen animal is behind it. These creatures are said to be mischievous pranksters while never doing any real harm.

This story could provide light entertainment for very young readers although it lacks a strong plot line or moral values/lessons or emotional satisfaction. Young children might be amused by the very unrealistic characters and creatures. However, being my age, I found the story a bit ridiculous and lackluster and would only recommend it to very young children.

Thanks for reading!



I am about to be a senior in high school and I like english class. Writing is a great way to express myself. I also enjoy active activities such as snowboarding, surfing, skateboarding, going to concerts, and rockclimbing.
