The Shadow

author: Donna Diamond

Itís an ordinary afternoon. A child comes home, heads upstairs, and sprawls on the floor to do some drawing under the watchful eyes of a pair of favorite dolls. But thereís another character in this wordless story: the shadow, unnoticed at first, then slowly creeping into her field of view. Itís a terrifying sight. Will the girl cower, or will she take on this shadow and tell it whoís boss? And where will the shadow go from there? With mesmerizing intensity, this dreamlike story tells an unflinching tale about recognizing and staring down oneís fears -- if only for a time.

A young girl confronts her fears in an eerie, wordless picture book featuring stunning, hyper-realistic illustrations. (Ages 5-8)
