What they've said about Carousel:
Written by Lemony Snicket
Illustrated by Jon Klassen
This is an irresistible picture book about boy who was wary of darkness but brave enough to conquer his fear. The unique collaboration between author and illustrator has created a book with a simple message expressed in both satisfying words and pictures - without darkness there would be no light. The limited palette is subtle and gentle and instinctively leads the readers safely through the book into The Dark. The familiar scenes highlighted by the torch beam are executed so elegantly yet are perfectly tuned with the text and the conclusion is a delight - everyone finishes with a thoughtful smile on their faces.
