Kamyla Chung has a big problem. Every night after her parents turn off the light, a giant creepy crawly appears on her bedroom wall. Her parents buy her a night-light, but that only makes things worse! Will an exterminator be able to help, or will the creepy crawlies scare her away?

Beautiful illustrations and creative prose will endear children to the story of Kamyla, a little girl who sees things on her wall that might or might not be products of a vivid imagination.

New one review witch 2017

Kamyla Chung wanted to know if creepy crawlies eat people as she was certain that of a night-time, in her bedroom, a huge creepy crawly with long tentacles and a big head and belly was hiding.

Her parents tried to help her feel less scared, they even bought her a night-light but that didn’t help. In the end, there was nothing else to do but to call in the exterminator to get rid of the big creepy crawly. But was it really a huge insect or something else?

I’m sure every child at some point in their life has been scared of something that they can’t explain, especially of a night when the light from the moon shines bright and causes everything in their bedrooms to have shadows. Some shadows can be very scary to look at.

I loved the story and how Kamyla though scared still went to bed every night and tried to work out what the thing that looked like a creepy crawly was. In the end with no luck and become more scared her parents decided to call in the exterminator.

When children discover what the item really is I can see them giggling an also realising that not everything that seems scary, really is.

The illustrations are just divine and really capture the heart and soul of the book. The character development throughout is just perfect and the story is written in an easy to understand and read manner so that those just learning to read can enjoy it as much as confident readers.

This is the first book is a series about Kamyla. I now look forward to catching up with her again.
