The story of Tucker is identifable to most all children and especially those sleeping alone in thier own bedroom. The Underbed is an engrossing tale of a child who is certain there is something under his bed. He also has a child-like faith that his Mom will believe him and give him the comfort he needs. The story is well written and the illistrations are exceptional. The expressions and actions of Tucker and his mother are natural and realistic. The colorful pictures are detailed even down to the lace on the pillow case. Even the "underbed" creature is beleivable and strangly cute. I have loved this book from the begining even before it was in print because my son(s) and I were the models for the boy "Tucker" and his mother. The house and furnishings were mine as well as all the clothing worn. My boys are now 17 and 19 years old and still wear Superman T-shirts to school and to college(Tucker wears superman pj's). Some things are just too much fun to give up (like superman) and this book is one of them.
