Lily and the Night Creatures Written by Nick Lake

Lily’s worst fears manifest when sinister creatures posing as her parents infest her home on the night her new baby sibling is expected. Accompanied by pen-and-ink illustrations, the book is filled with talking animal friends, exciting twists, and plenty of creepy moments, while also focusing on Lily coming to terms with a chronic illness and a fear of being replaced. I especially loved the drawings with their balance of spookiness and silliness.
