It's Too Dark, Puffling
A kind little puffling lives on Skellig Michael.
She loves her cosy underground bed.
But her smaller puffling friend is afraid.
‘I don’t like the dark. It’s too dark in the dark.’
Can the animals of Skellig help to show him the wonder of night-time?
“An enchanting and reassuring picture book that can help calm young ones before bedtime.”
“Both pufflings are immensely appealing characters and the very young will love the thrill of their moonlit wander across the island, and the reassuring ending. The text is perfect to read aloud, full of repetition, and great for joining in, while the illustrations convey so much information about life on Skellig Michael, from the puffins arriving with fish in their beaks to the fulmars and guillemots on their cliff edge nests.”
