The Dark

by Jon Klassen, Lemony Snicket

HarperCollins Canada | April 2, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Dark is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bed time story I bought two books to read to my 4 year old grandson at bedtime but he only wants to hear the story of The Dark. He loves this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lemony Snicket Delivers Epicness The Dark is the story of a boy who needs to over come his fear of the dark. The story is very good and I find that Snicket delivers a great story and once I closed the book I thought, "Oh boy. I want more picture books by Lemony. The art and the writing really impressed me and I must say that the combo of Mo Williams and Lemony Snicket is fantastic. TheBookReviewer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A pleasant Story I was ordering some other books from the site and this one was on the new releases page. I didn't know anything about it but my daughter loves books about shadows/the dark etc so I added it to my cart. I didn't even realize it was written by Lemony Snicket. I was pleasantly surprised with the story and my daughter loved it. It is well written and easy for children to understand. My daughter asked lots of questions and wanted me to read it again as soon as we finished :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bedtime Story! Young Laszlo is afraid of the dark, but as long as it stays in the basement he can carry on. One night, however, he's forced to face his fear when his beloved nightlight burns out. And, surprisingly, the dark isn't nearly as menacing as he thought. Snicket and Klassen are an author/illustrator pairing made in heaven. Snicket's offbeat and oddly charming tone is complemented perfectly by Klassen's clean, simple representation of light and dark. A quirky and delightful little story to share before bedtime!
