Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With a pop-up spooky surprise on the final spread, David A. Carter's In a Dark, Dark Wood puts a new spin on an old tale. The paper-over-board book features colors-emanating from beakers-that waft, snake-like, through the full-bleed illustrations; sturdy pages ensure durability.
Children's Literature
"In a dark, dark, wood, there was a dark, dark, house." Thus begins this popular jump story. It will effectively scare the listener with its lime green ghost that pops up on the last page and appears to go toward the reader. The simple text, intended to be read slowly and quietly, is accompanied by illustrations in dark and muted tones. Once inside the house, the angled perspectives give the impression that something is amiss. The glowing eyes of a black cat and those within a knight's armor, along with white moonlit shadows and a dark shadowy hand further add to the spookiness. This is a favorite story of children in the primary grades. Carter's pop-up edition will be popular. 2002 (1991), Little Simon/ Simon & Schuster,
