Daisy isn't afraid of Darkness when he quietly slips in through her bedroom window one evening. Together, Daisy and Darkness dance and play until bedtime. This enchanting story personifies Darkness as a friendly and welcome visitor. The bold design includes a wonderfully tactile varnish to highlight Darkness's looming shape as he fills the room. The book's striking use of black and white is enlivened by vibrant accents of hot pinks and warm yellows. The rhyming text is a delight to read aloud and will help allay a childhood fear of the dark. Darkness Slipped In has all the makings of a modern classic!
