Lemony Snicket’s new children’s book, The Dark, illustrated by Jon Klassen, comes out today. It’s about a kid who’s afraid of the dark. The trailer is great.
Do you know what’s also great? The interview we did with Lemony Snicket (otherwise known as Daniel Handler) a few months back. He talked about “proud Snicket tradition of a reassurance that dark things are, in fact, there. … That a terrible thing can happen at any moment, and it is up to you to persevere through it.” I liked that.
Aren’t we all just kids who are afraid of the dark?
