The Park in the Dark
by Martin Waddell
illustrated by Barbara Firth

A hugely endearing picture book

When the sun goes down & the moon comes up, the toy monkey & his friends, Loopy the elephant & Little Gee the dog, creep softly out of the bedroom, down the stairs & through the dark hall on their way to the deserted park

The park's an exciting place to be after dark, though a little bit scary - especially when the Thing (a night train) hurtles out of the darkness, seeming to chase them. Then the 3 friends run all the way home & jump back into bed, safe & sound once more


The pictures are washed with soft blues & other dusty colours, rendering each dark corner safe. These 3 friends make the nighttime world a welcome place

For ages 3-6

The illustrations, 2-page frameless beauties in soft watercolours, communicate the friendship of the animals during their nighttime escapade

As a child daycare provider, I am always looking for great kids books. This one has it all! The pictures are just the right amount of spooky, & the antics are sure to delight your little ones. A book my kids want to hear again & again

I love the rhyme most of all; the play with language is soothing & beautiful

Soft bound
32 pages
