English author/illustrator Emma Yarlett's style is immediately reminiscent of Oliver Jeffers. Her new book, 'Orion and the Dark' explores the age-old theme of being afraid of the dark. Orion is afraid of a lot of things...storms, the sea, heights, monsters and even gran! The one night, Orion meets the Dark and together they go on an adventure to dispel all those fears. Facing all those shadowing, scary spots in the house with Dark by his side makes things just that little less frightening.
Die-cut pages add a lovely sense of interactivity to this text, while the multi-media illustrations are sure to add to an increased interest.
