"Steve Jones' first book is undeniable positive proof that Grandpas actually know a little something about Monsters and Little Boys. (Believe it, or not!) A charming, comforting bedtime read."

“A stunningly beautiful book with lovely illustrations that are both aesthetically appealing and emotionally evocative, “The Hidden Buffalo” tackles the challenge of empowering children to overcome their nightmares. The vividness of our imagination - especially in dreams, is quite powerful. In this story it alternately delights and terrifies.
Steve Jones’ story features loving adults who attend sensitively to the children’s needs using reality testing and gentle encouragement to face their fears”.
