This book has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween and yet it perfectly captures the spirit of late October, when the light drains away and the dark starts to settle in earlier and earlier. Laszlo may be afraid of the dark, but the dark is not afraid of Laszlo. Laszlo never visits the dark in the basement, where it lives. And he tries to avoid having the dark visit him by using his trusty flashlight and steadfast night light. But one night... the dark comes to his room. And things are never the same again. Great for introducing the concept of suspense. Or just instilling dread in your youngest listeners! A 2016 Monarch Award nominee.
