The Lovereading4Kids comment

A very simple story told with few words but wonderful images where shadows and dark shapes leap off the page as the mouse runs through the dark wood and into the streets, then into a house, down some dark, dark stairs to find something… but what? It’s a beautifully illustrated, atmospheric twist on a familiar tale with a charming surprise ending.

Synopsis

On a Dark, Dark Night by Simon Prescott

In a dark, dark wood, there was a dark, dark path . . . Along the dark, dark path, there was a dark, dark town . . .

As Mouse runs through the moonlit town towards a big, dark house, all around him there are strange shapes and shadows, just waiting to jump out . . .

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
