The Dark by Lemony Snicket, illustrated by Jon Klassen is absolutely adorable! It has a great storyline and wonderful artwork. I would highly recommend this for anyone that enjoys children’s books.
And if you’re looking for a great gift for a child you know, I would definitely suggest this!
My Thoughts on The Dark by Lemony Snicket, Illustrated by Jon Klassen
This was such a cute book! I absolutely loved it. Definitely one that I will be buying when I have kiddos, but also as gifts for my friends kids.
The storyline was adorable! At first it was a bit spooky, but soon it was upbeat and happy. There is one page that has much more text than the others that was typical Lemony Snicket style. Of course I loved this page the most.
My favorite element of this book was the author bio at the end, which stated:
LEMONY SNICKET has been accused of leaving his readers in the dark. He is the author of numerous books, including those in A Series of Unfortunate Events and All the Wrong Questions.
Gosh, I love the Lemony Snicket persona SO much. I think it is so clever!
My Favorite Passages from The Dark
“What do you want?” asked Laszlo.
“I want to show you something,” said the dark.
You might be afraid of the dark, but the dark is not afraid of you. That’s why the dark is always close by.
