One scary night a young boy finds himself alone in a cold, dark forest. As he walks deeper into the woods, it starts to snow. The boy presses on, but he is not alone. Something is watching him. Is it friend or foe? This phenomenal, wordless picture book is narrated with black-and-white illustrations from the wonderful children's author and illustrator, Antoine Guilloppé.

Gr. 2-4. This is scary, and although the book is in a traditional, horizontal picture-book format, its audience should be older children, particularly those interested in the striking black-and-white art. The wordless story shows a boy in black silhouette tramping though white snow (the bottom third of the spread), with a pure, black sky above. The intricate interplay of stark opposites soon reveals a dark animal, perhaps a wolf, padding through the snow, the boy in its sights. As the snow falls harder, the animal moves closer. In a truly upsetting spread, the animal jumps on the child, knocking him down. It's then revealed that the predator is the boy's friendly dog, overjoyed to see him. With art reminiscent of Istvan Banyai's, this book is a fantastic example of what can be accomplished in black and white, especially when design elements are as stylishly rendered as these: Tiffany glass-style branches top crisscrossing trees, and overhead views give children a literal bird's-eye view. Shiny gold eyes peer from a glossy black cover, with book's title, in white, luring children inside. REVWR
