"Whew! Thanks for turning on the lights! As I said, I'm afraid of the dark. Actually, I'm afraid of most things, because I'm spineless."
An anthropomorphized book breaks the fourth wall and talks directly to the reader, fearing the possibility of facing a terrifying plot, becoming braver with each page turn.
What I like about this book:
Lindsay has two more books under contract with Page Street Kids (so far!). Keep a look out for this new talent.
