Description

It’s the twins’ first sleepover! Flo and Ludovic have permission for some friends to spend the night, and they’re planning to go to the fair together the next morning. When it’s finally time for bed and Dad turns off the light, Ludovic becomes unusually quiet. He has a secret!

The other children snuggle into their comforters, but Ludovic, frightened of the dark, hides under his. Suddenly, from under the blanket, he hears a noise and peeks out. One by one, the dogs printed on the comforters come to life! One of them, a dog named Dude, approaches him.

Hearing some strange noises, Flo and her friend climb to the top bunk to see what’s going on. They can’t believe their eyes! Ludovic’s furry friends are there to help him face his night-time fears. The kids can sleep peacefully, knowing the friendly guard dogs will look out for them and be not only the keepers of the night but also the keepers of their fears.

Whoosh Whoosh Monster" by Lili GAMINE is a delightful children's book that captures the excitement and apprehension of a first sleepover through the eyes of two charming characters, Flo and Ludo. They are joined by their friends Sybil, Clovis, and Lou for a night filled with adventure and unexpected friendships.
The story centres around Ludo's fear of monsters, a relatable theme for many young readers. Ludo's anxiety leads him to hide under the covers, but the narrative takes a heartwarming turn when he is woken in the middle of the night by a surprising new friend—a dog named Dude who magically comes to life from a drawing on Ludo's comforter! Dude's presence is comforting, and it’s revealed that he has been watching over Ludo every night, making the night less scary and more magical.
As the night progresses, Sybil and Flo wake up and, along with Ludo and Dude hatch a clever plan to catch the monster. With the help of a few more surprising friends, the group embark on an adventure that teaches Ludo a valuable lesson: there is nothing to be scared of after all. The author skillfully balances humor and suspense, keeping young readers entertained while delivering a reassuring message about facing fears and the power of friendship.
I was unable to see the illustrations adequately on my kindle so unfortunately I can't review this aspect of the book, however, even with the absence of illustrations "Whoosh Whoosh Monster" would make an excellent addition to any child's bookshelf. It’s a perfect bedtime story that not only entertains but also helps children navigate their own fears with courage and the support of friends. Highly recommended for young readers and their families!

Whoosh Whoosh Monster
Lili Gamine
Twins Flo and Ludovic are having their first sleepover. They are very excited; Sybil, Clovis, and Lou are there. All goes well until it is time to go to bed and Dad turns off the light. Everyone is snug in their coverlet except Ludovic. It is dark. It is scary. He has a secret. He’s afraid of the dark. While the other children drift off to sleep warm and cozy Ludovic is afraid. He hides his head under his coverlet with dogs printed all over it. He peeks out from under his cover when he hears a noise. A dog named Dude and his friends come to life. Flo and a friend hear something strange. They climb to the top bunk and are shocked to see the dogs helping Ludovic overcome his fears. The dogs stand guard over the children all night long. Flo and one of her friends hear a strange noise and climb to the top bunk where Ludovic is laying. They are surprised to see all the dogs standing guardl they are helping Ludovic overcome his fears. Ludovic feels better knowing Dude is watching over him.
What a delightful children’s book. It will appeal to children. It demonstrates the excitement of a child’s first sleepover and the apprehension. Often a children will fear embarrassing themselves in front of their friends. Many children are afraid of the dark. This book is entertaining, fun and has a nice message.
Thank you NetGalley for the review copy.
