The Dark – by Lemony Snicket ; illustrated by Jon Klassen

This book was cute, creepy and charming, with a nice twist; exactly what I would expect from Lemony Snicket.  I’m also becoming a fan of Jon Klassen, his style really speaks to me, and the projects he participates in are quickly becoming favourites and I will be seeking out more of his work in the future. The picture book is about a young boy who is rather afraid of the dark, and bout once happens once the night light in his room goes out. It’s perfect for your little one who might be a bit skittish of the dark, it seems scary in the beginning, and the book exudes a bit of tension but by the end that tension is drained and the reader is no longer so worried about the dark.
