Click here for DCPL Access to The Dark by Lemony Snicket Little Goblins Ten  
Illustrated and told to be a bit ominous and creepy, the overall message of this book may be that the dark is not scary, but I'm not sure I was convinced. A little on the spooky side! A new take on the nursery rhyme, "over in the meadow," this book wants to be read out loud. Have fun counting and bringing this story to kids you know!
