    One thought on “The Dark”

    1. Prob one of the most surreal children's book i ever read's about a sentient piece of darkness (treated with "sort of" mundane normal-ness) that eats shadows with eager smiles and glee and the smart little girl who bravely manages to deal with it. Very much the weird humor of Munsch.

    2. Depending on the tone of voice one uses to read this book, The Dark can be charming or terrifying. I enjoyed creepin' my students out with this menacing dark.

    3. The Dark by Robert Munsch Illustrated by Michael martchenko is a book for primary readers. In this book the little girl opens a mysteries cookie jar and releases The Dark. The Dark eats up shadows and gets bigger and bigger. It seems like it's a children's version of Pandora's Box. You open something that you shouldn't and let out secrets and they you have to fix your mess and get all the secrets back into the box and dispose of the box. This is what Jule Ann had to do with The Dark she let out [...]

    4. Robert Munsch's book, The Dark, has an interesting take on the dark. I thought it could be used in a science lesson about night, day and the reason behind that. Although the character in the book is not actually night it does go into discussing taking away shadows and that the little girl does not get to go outside and play. They could write about what they can do in the dark and during the day. Also, we can experiment with our shadows. Many more experiments showing night and day and the why aro [...]

    5. I love Robert Munsch. At some point I need to stop reviewing his books because, almost with exception, I love his books. I did hate "A Promise is a Promise" though and I'm not super excited by some of his more recent books.

    6. This was a much better title. The story was whimsical and light toned. I would certainly allow my children to read this one.

    7. This was a summer reading program selection for my kids. We didn't like the story, but the illustrations were ok.
