When the sun goes down, the Dark stretches out. The Dark can be scary, but it can be other things too - it depends on how you see it... This gorgeous picture book tells the story of a little boy's fear of the Dark. Ingenious holes cut in the illustrations help to explore his feelings. When he goes camping with his dad, he discovers that it's only when it's really Dark that you can see all the beautiful stars. Maybe the Dark isn't so bad after all... This friendly, heartwarming story with a wonderful, cut-out starry sky, is a comforting, helpful book to share with young children.
