The Holy Terror

A possible retreat from goodreads ... though I'm tempted to yell "get off my lawn" at this site's tumblresque-ness. Yes, that's totally a word.

The Dark - Lemony Snicket, Jon Klassen I didn't like this : (And I realize I'm not the intended audience for this book, but I've read picture books as an adult that have made me laugh and even cry, this just wasn't one that touched me in any way.I wasn't afraid of the dark when I was a kid; my room was in the basement. The illustrations weren't anything special, there wasn't much story beyond "there's no reason to be afraid of the dark," and the writing wasn't particularly clever.One thing though, if you have a kid struggling with being afraid of the dark, this might be a great book to check out to try to explain that there's nothing to be afraid of. I don't know if it'll work, but hey, it's worth a try!I think this is just one of those instances where this wasn't meant for me, but others might enjoy it.
