Leonard S. Marcus…preschoolers have not lacked for picture books to help them face down their fears. The trick for authors has been to find new wrinkles to explore in the well-worn material. In The Monster Who Ate Darkness, Joyce Dunbar does just that by recasting the hidden monster of her story as a kind of childlike magical helper…The story unfolds like a dream in which the monster's appetite is shown to be without bounds…Jimmy Liao, a Taiwanese illustrator, charts the course of this journey in crisp, bright, digitally enhanced pen-and-watercolor graphics.
