Belgian author/illustrator Liesbet Slegers offers four titles to quell childhood fears. The paper-over-board books star a forthright fellow depicted in thick black line and pleasingly smudgy brushstrokes of rainbow colors. ""I'm Kevin. I'm on my way. I have my suitcase and my grandma,"" he announces as he boards an airplane in Kevin Takes a Trip. When he gets scared, his grandmother comforts him. Kevin Goes to School; Kevin Goes to the Hospital; and Kevin Spends the Night address other universal anxieties.
