Laszlo is afraid of the dark. The dark lives in the same house as Laszlo but mostly it spends its time in the basement. It doesn't visit Laszlo in his room. Until one night it does. With emotional insight and poetic economy, Lemony Snicket and Jon Klassen bring to light a universal and empowering story about conquering fear. Join a brave boy on his journey to meet the dark, and see why it will never bother him again. The originality of The Dark is breathtaking - The Times A reassuring story for any children who may be afraid of the dark - Sunday Express If ever there was a perfect creative pairing of words and pictures, surely this is it - Daily Mail Thoughtful, perceptive and very reassuring - Parents In Touch
