The Little Crooked Bookshelf


FLASHLIGHT
by Lizi Boyd

What it's all about . . .
A boy camping in the woods uses his flashlight to illuminate gentle woodland creatures, plants, and flowers. This wordless picture book, illustrated mostly in black and white, includes cut-outs and a visual surprise on every page.

Why it's on The Little Crooked Bookshelf . . .
Original and stunning, FLASHLIGHT is an ode to night, nature, and art.

Our favorite illustrations . . .

Why kids will love it . . .
After reading FLASHLIGHT, kids will want to break out their own flashlights to explore the natural world around them. They'll also love the surprise ending--tables are turned when an owl shines the light on the boy, providing the first time we see the boy in color.


Why grown-ups will love it . . .

This book might help parents reassure children who are afraid of the dark.

    This looks absolutely stunning, would be a great bedtime story to read to my 3yo daughter, who all of a sudden has become aware of the dark at night.
