Who's Afraid of the Dark?

One of my new favorite picture books is The Dark, written by Lemony Snicket and illustrated by Jon Klassen. The story tells of Laszlo's fear of the dark in a most unique and intriguing way, helped along by some
splendid illustrations. My six year old son and I have read it probably fifty times and I marvel at it, each and every time. There is no being scared after this encounter with Dark. Definitely one of those books that I will give as gifts in the future. Thank you Mr. Snicket and Mr. Klassen for a new classic.
