What's Flashlight About

Publisher Summary

Inside a tent it’s cozy. But what is going on outside? Is it dark? Is it scary? Not if you have your trusty flashlight! Told solely through images and using a spare yet dramatic palette, artist Lizi Boyd has crafted a masterful exploration of night, nature, and art. Both lyrical and humorous, this visual poem—like the flashlight beam itself—reveals that there is magic in the darkness. We just have to look for it.

While it doesn’t have words, Flashlight still tells an adventurous story of a young boy exploring the woods with his flashlight and the funny, ironic turn his adventure takes. The simple illustration style captures the feeling of searching in the dark, when often only outlines of shapes can be seen. Yet there is still a lot to study and observe on each page, and some mischief to discover, too. The dark outlines contrast in a fun way with the detail that emerges wherever the flashlight shines.
