THE DARK by Lemony Snicket with illustrations by Jon Klassen. LBYR, 2013.
Okay, so as soon as word leaked about the F&G on my desk, the book traveled from one end of the office hall to the other (where I retrieved it having put an alarm on it). When you see the names on the cover, is much more necessary to get you to read it? Probably not. Yet, read it you must. The perfect blend of word and image, the seamless storytelling in both aspects of the the picture book medium/form/format create a book that demands to be read, especially to be read aloud. And more than once. <612>
