My three year old son and I recently got this book from the library. Needless to say, it is due now, so we need to buy our own copy! He loves it. We have read it every night for the past two weeks before nap AND bedtime! When we get to the page where the main character reaches into the Snide bush, and who do you think he feels? My son says, "THE PALE GWEEN PANTS!" The words just flow from your mouth and the story builds in anticipation. It has such a great lesson...indeed, "I was just as strange to them as they were strange to me." What a wonderful book, fun yet with a valuable sentiment!

The book What Was I Scared Of? tells the story of a young boy afraid of a pair of pants. The empty pants follow him around, but not because he wants to scare the boy, but because he is lonely and empty. When the narrator and the pair of pants are hiding from each other in the same bush, the boy realizes that he was just as strange to him as he was to the boy.
