A Globe & Mail 100
Two bestselling talents shed new light on an age-old
Lazlo is afraid of the dark. It hides in closets and sometimes
sits behind the shower curtain, but mostly it lives in the
basement. One night, when Lazlo''s nightlight burns out, the dark
comes to visit him in his room. "Lazlo," the Dark says. "I want to
show you something." And so Lazlo descends the basement stairs to
face his fears and discover a few comforting facts about the
mysterious presence with whom all children must learn to live.
Beautifully rendered with sympathy and wit, this first
collaboration between Snicket and Klassen offers a fresh take on a
universal childhood experience.
