Review

Setting the picture book world alight with quirky and evocative style. (tBk Mag)

Irresistible. (Bookseller)

"Definitely keep this one handy for little ones - and grown-ups, for that matter- who are still scared of the dark". (The Saturday Age, Melbourne)

"The book takes a unique and engaging angle on a common theme, giving it a dark new twist that ultimately will leave children empowered and enthralled". (The Courier Mail, Brisbane)

Snicket and Klassen are an inspired pairing in this suspenseful take on childhood fear. . . . a memorable ride on the emotional roller coaster that great storytelling creates. Ages 3-6. (Publishers Weekly)

The originality of The Dark is breathtaking, as are the pictures and prose. Klassen and Snicket play to their combined strengths. This elegant, vividly written tale should win some shuteye for all - and prizes for its creators. (The Times)

Highly original and visually stunning. * * * * * (Bookbag)

A powerhouse. (School Library Journal)

Lemony Snicket plays masterfully with the picture book genre in The Dark. Jon Klassen's Seventies-style illustrations are a perfect match for Snicket's wit and virtuosity. (The Daily Telegraph)

A familiar fear is given a new lease of life... serious, clever and intensely illustrated. (The Guardian)

Book Description

Two bestselling, world-renowned talents of children's literature come together for the first time to bring you a universal and empowering story about conquering fear of the dark.
