King Who Banned The Dark at 10.30-11.30am
by Emily Haworth-Booth
There was once a little boy who was afraid of the dark. There's nothing so un- usual about that. Most children are afraid of the dark at one time or another. But this little boy was a Prince, and he decided that when he became King, he would do something about the dark.
He would ban it.
When the King bans the dark completely, he installs an artificial sun, and en- forces "anti-dark" laws. The citizens don't need to worry about any of the scary things that might 'live' in the dark.
But what happens when nobody can sleep? The citizens revolt. Can the King face his fears and turn the lights off?
The King Who Banned the Dark is a beautiful and thought-provoking story about how we need the dark in order to enjoy the light.
