Piglet Bo Is Not Scared! written by Geert DeKockere and illustrated by Tineke Van Hemeldonck (2015)
Piglet Bo convinces himself that he is not afraid of a mouse, a dark room, a deep hole, a field of nettles, or a roller coaster. But when he falls asleep in the woods and wakes up in the middle of the night, Piglet Bo admits that he is afraid of the shadows and he runs and runs until the sun comes up.
The art work in this book is so clever and creative! On every page there is an image of a wolf ready to attack Piglet Bo (which he doesn’t notice) and in the end it’s the shadows that look like wolves that Piglet Bo runs from.
Shadows can be the source of much scary or happy play for children.
