Jule Ann pounds on the bottom of a cookie jar and a small, dark lump bounces out. The Dark quickly eats up Jule Ann’s shadow, and then her mother and father’s shadows, growing bigger and bigger with each swallow. When the Dark grows as big as her house, Jule Ann comes up with an ingenious plan to get it back where it belongs.

A newly designed Classic Munsch picture book brings all of the escalating thrills of The Dark to a new generation of young readers.

This book is 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches big. The illustrations take up one page, are colorful and truly stick to what is happening in the story. This story is about a dark spot that falls out of a cookie jar and starts to swallow every shadow it sees. It grows to an enormous size. The girl has to figure out how to get rid of it. This is a very short story so not much happens other than the spot eating shadows and getting bigger. Probably better suited for a read aloud to very young children; first graders thought it was okay, but were not that interested in it.
