We begin with the declaration, "Once there was a little boy who didn't like the night." What he liked were lanterns and lamps, torches and tapers, and basically anything that created light. So he never went outside at night, although from his window he could see the other children playing on their lawns on summer nights. At night, he slept in the only room in town with a light on: he did not like light switches, because they switched off the light, and he never switched off the light. But then comes the night when his parents were away and the boy turned on every light in the house to keep away the night. Then there came a knock at the door and there was a young girl who said her name was Dark, and who told the little boy that she would introduce him to the Night so that they could be friends.
Needless to say, if you have a child who is afraid of the dark, this book can help them get over it (I bet some parents will read the book and instead of passing it along to their child will simply follow Dark's lead and play it out for real).Read more ›
