Description

You might be afraid of the dark, but the dark is not afraid of you. That’s why the dark is always close by.” The originality of THE DARK is breathtaking, as are the pictures and the prose” Amanda Craig, The Times Simply told and evocatively drawn, this is an ideal book to read with young children. -- The Scotsman A really special book. Beautiful pictures and a strong message that the dark is nothing to be afraid of. Both Theo 8 and Mimosa 4 have been talking about Lazlo (the hero) ever since and how brave he is looking for the dark and how lovely it is when he realises that there is nothing to be afraid of. One of those books that you will read over and over again - Mimosa has asked for it again tonight (having had it twice yesterday). A real quality story in same vein as We're Going on a Bear Huntand Where the Wild Things Are.

In this sentence, the moon winked at the owl. Of course, the moon can’t wink because it is definitely an inanimate object. As well, clouds can’t wander. Wandering is when one walks or moves in a leisurely, casual, or aimless way. Clouds may seem like they wander, but of course they too are inanimate objects that float or travel where the wind moves them.

About Lemony Snicket

In this beautifully constructed sentence, one envisions a seed cradled in the dark by the earth’s soil as if the earth were its mother, gently clutching its child. A familiar fear is given a new lease of life... serious, clever and intensely illustrated. -- The Guardian This book is fantastic. The art blended with the story is out of this world. I love how the dark feels alive and like it could jump out and get you. At the beginning, it even feels menacing until you get to know the dark. Once you get to know it, it is only part of life. I love and adore this book. You might be afraid of the dark, but the dark is not afraid of you. That's why the dark is always close by. The dark peeks around the corner and waits behind the door, and you can see the dark up in the sky almost every night, gazing down at you as you gaze up at the stars. Without a creaky roof, the rain would fall on your bed, and without a smooth, cold window, you could never see outside, and without a set of stairs, you could never go into the basement, where the dark spends its time. Without a closet, you would have nowhere to put your shoes, and without a shower curtain, you would splash water all over the bathroom, and without the dark, everything would be light, and you would never know if you needed a lightbulb. The dark lives in the same house as Laszlo. Mostly, though, the dark stays in the basement and doesn't come into Lazslo's room. But one night, it does.

When discussing the book, Daniel Handler said that when he "embarked on the world of picture books, [his] first thought was to do something about the dark." He has a distinct childhood memory of explaining to adults that he was not afraid of the dark, but yet things that could be lurking inside. [1] An offbeat -- and spookily atmospheric -- approach to fear of the dark, with a creative story and high-impact artwork...an enjoyable thrill." The Bulletin Without a closet, you would have nowhere to put your shoes, and without a shower curtain, you would splash water all over the bathroom, and without the dark, everything would be light, and you never know if you needed a lightbulb." La moraleja de la historia es hacernos ver que el miedo no solo es inevitable, si no NECESARIO. No debemos de enfrascarnos en superarlo, si no en entenderlo.You might be afraid of the dark, but the dark is not afraid of you.” Laszlo is afraid but there’s not much he can do about it. Seems as though the dark is everywhere you look sometimes. Generally speaking it lives in the basement, and every morning Laszlo would open the door and say, “Hi . . . Hi, dark.” He wouldn’t get a reply. Then, one night, the dark does something unprecedented. It comes into Laszlo’s room and though he has a flashlight, it seems to be everywhere. It says it wants to show him something. Something in the basement. Something in the bottom drawer of an old dresser. Something that helps Laszlo just when he needs it. The dark still visits Laszlo now. It just doesn’t bother him.
