I took a speed reading course. It changed my reading - not for the better. I tend to rush through books. I have grown to love wordless books because they make me stop and really look and think about what is happening.
This book did that. The boy is camping and ventures out with his flashlight. Scary!! However, soon fun and interesting discoveries are made and an interaction with a silly racoon make it even more interactive.
Inside a tent it's cozy. But what is going on outside? Is it dark? Is it scary? Not if you have your trusty flashlight! Told solely through images and using a spare yet dramatic palette, artist Lizi Boyd has crafted a masterful exploration of night, nature, and art. Both lyrical and humorous, this visual poem—like the flashlight beam itself—reveals that there is magic in the darkness. We just have to look for it.
