From an award-winning author and illustrator comes this delightful story about a child who faces her fears and makes friends with the Dark. They go on a wild nocturnal adventure together - but what happens to everyone else when the Dark has run away?

'I'm Dark,' said the voice. 'It's all right if you don't like me. Nobody does. Everyone is too afraid. Just close your eyes and by morning I'll be gone.'
Dark heaved a sigh.

One night, Lucy befriends the Dark and zooms away with it on an adventure to explore all the wonderful things that happen when the Dark is around. But back home, everyone else is discovering that they really do miss the Dark after all. Can Lucy and Dark be convinced to return?
