    책 내용
    Inside a tent it"s cozy. But what is going on outside? Is it dark? Is it scary? Not if you have your trusty flashlight! Told solely through images and using a spare yet dramatic palette, artist Lizi Boyd has crafted a masterful exploration of night, nature, and art. Both lyrical and humorous, this visual poem—like the flashlight beam itself—reveals that there is magic in the darkness. We just have to look for it.

    What the jury said
    It is growing dark and a little boy is peeping out of his tent looking out into the darkness. Using his flashlight, he discovers the friendly world nature at night. This book is a visual poem featuring lovely, original line illustrations on black paper with colour confined to the spaces lit up by the flashlight beam. Flashlight tells a simple yet resonant story of a boy’s curiosity overcoming his fears.


    From School Library Journal

    PreS-Gr 1—A wandering boy investigates the night in this wordless picture book. Bold black backgrounds feature outlines in grays, whites, and muted greens of trees, stream, plants, and animals. Each page discloses in full color something formerly hidden via the stream of light from the child"s flashlight. Readers discover flags on a treehouse, apples on the ground, and a deer. In a fun twist, when the flashlight drops, various creatures take turns shedding light on the boy. A luna moth flutters on each page, waiting to be discovered. This elegant book serves to alleviate fear of night noises, instigate talk of nocturnal creatures, or bring calm as a bedtime story.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

The illustrations are graphic, clear, and uncluttered in a rich palette.
