“The lights went out. All of them.” You know what that’s like, don’t you? Not only the lights, but the fan, the refrigerator, the computer, the radio.
Blackout is the story of one family’s evening without power and how a crisis, even a minor one, can bring people together in comfortable ways. The story is predictable, but the illustrations are rich and lustrous.
Pair this book with Elisha Cooper’s A Good Night Walk for another lovely story about a summer night.
