The Dark

thedarkWritten by Lemony Snicket, Illustrated by Jon Klassen

This is a very interesting book about the dark. A boy named Laszlo was afraid of the dark. He noticed that the dark lived in the same house as him and was everywhere, like in the closet or behind the shower curtain, but especially in the basement. Laszlo thought that if he visited the dark in the dark’s room that the dark wouldn’t visit him in his room. But one night the dark did come visit Laszlo in his room which meant that Laszlo would have to find a way to become friends with the dark.

A very inventive story which makes you think about your fears about the dark. This story would be great for children K-3rd grade or for anyone who is afraid of the dark. The illustrations are very clean and simple with muted colors.
