The History of Darkness
Mørkets historie

Julie Horst and Daria Rychkova (illustrator) gave us Tails Throughout Time (Halens historie, 2013), an ingenious, lexical picture book which won the prestigious Bologna Ragazzi Award Opera Prima. This time, they have written about something all children can relate to, and nearly all are afraid of: the dark.

Through the eyes of a little boy who would rather sleep in his big brother’s room, we learn that the darkness can be explained, and that it isn’t actually so very frightening.

Suitable for children from 4 to 8 years.
