A GOOD BOOK // The Dark

It's always exciting when two great minds come together to make a good book, and The Dark doesn't disappoint. Lemony Snicket takes a young boys fear and eloquently lays it out across the pages with a simple story that both reassures and delights. These beautiful words are packaged in the stunning illustrations of Jon Klasson, with simple strong graphic lines and a wonderful use of black, it oozes the classic style of a bygone era.

The voice of the dark was as creaky 
as the roof of the house, and as smooth and
cold as the windows, and even though the dark
was right next to Laszlo, the
voice seemed very far away.

This a treasure to keep on any bookshelf and will encourage children to be brave if something goes bump in the night.
