My Five Star Review for ~ SIR STAN THE BOGEYMAN * * * * *by Stacie Morrell THE VIRTUAL BOOKTOUR CAFE

Sir Stan the Bogeyman
by Stacie Morrell
Illustrated by Elizabeth Berg

5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and Clever as much in its Words as in the Illustrations, September 1, 2013
By Maria Catalina Egan "M.C.V. Egan" (Delray Beach, Florida USA) 
This review is from: Sir Stan the Bogeyman (Kindle Edition)
Sir Stan The Bogey Man is narrated through an elegant rhythmic structure that flows with great ease. The Illustrations are colorful and sophisticated. The narrative is nicely woven through the illustration. In a young children's book the visuals are as important as the words and this book achieves that masterfully.
The story is brilliant with great educational undertones on behavior and consequences. The characters have depth of emotion often not achieved in a short tale.
There is an old school elegance, a fun wit while exploring what all children fear and converting the Bogey Man into an endearing friend.
I would recommend this book to every parent of young kids. I can also imagine that this book will achieve great success. A thumbs up to both author and Illustrator.

In one sentence, who am I? Stacie Morrell is an eccentrically entertaining neurotic bibliophile who sells collectibles, tries to have patience with her precocious daughter, fearlessly tries to do everything, and writes because she is driven to as part of her genetic composition.
If I could go back and do one thing over: I would have figured out what I wanted from life way before now and gone back to school to get it (much, much sooner than I did).

Book Description:

Do dark places bother you?
The space under your bed…
The closet, door slightly ajar…
Do you believe in the Boogey Man?
Who is he?
Where did he come from?
What does he want?
Maybe he has a story to tell,
And we should listen.

  2. I was afraid of creepiness under the bed but as I was a child in Mexico it was not called the Bogey Man.
