Nighttime Too Dark To See - Todd Strasser and Doug Cushman

Too Dark To See

Todd Strasser (Author)

Doug Cushman (Illustrator)

Mike Laughead (Cover)


ISBN 9780545124768

This collection of eight spooky stories is intended for a young audience. Geared for children in grades 2-4, these stories will entertain and surprise. I actually got the series because I enjoyed the covers so much. The skeleton boy on the covers reminded me of the movie Princess Monoke, and I had to read these stories. I was not disappointed, and in this case judging a book by its cover paid off. These stories are dark enough to have an edge but not so dark kids will not be able to sleep. They present different aspects of fear and maybe serve as a warning. They were great fun to read and I look forward to other books in the series.

Books in the Nighttime Series:
