Flashlight - Lizi Boyd

Lizi Boyd’s magical night-time adventure is wordless perfection, and will reward many “readings.” A youngster is outside, exploring the woods by Flashlight (Chronicle, $16.99). As the child wanders through the book, Boyd brilliantly uses two techniques to show the profusion of activity in the dark. First, the pages are matte-black, her folk-like drawings done in subtle gray lines, and the only color is in the cone of light where the child aims the flashlight. Secondly, there are small die-cut holes to reveal even more mysteries as you turn each page. There is a lot to be discovered—bats, beavers, an owl, a raccoon, a fox and some porcupines are very busy. When the child trips, the flashlight goes flying, but help is on the way, for a gentle, satisfying end to the journey.  Ages 3-7. ANG
