Twilight Fright

This book tells a ghost story about the spiriting-away of a child at twilight. Such ghost stories, or kaidan, grew from reverence for the scale and darker side of Japan’s natural world. In this book, a girl wearing a mask explores a house, a shrine, the base of a large tree, the outside of a deserted building, and a space between two houses—all of which can be spooky, especially as twilight falls. Is someone there?! The reader’s heart pounds along with the girl’s. The symbolic illustrations, composition and organization of the book are excellent. <Nogami>
