Darkness Slipped in by Ella Burfoot

Daisy is busy playing when Darkness slips in through her bedroom window. But she isn't afraid -- she takes him by the hand and together they dance the night away! With Darkness imagined as a friendly night-time visitor, this playful rhyming story makes a great bedtime read, perfect for reassuring children who are afraid of the dark.
