You know that 5 minute window before you actually wake up and are a bit lucid, but still kind of dreaming too? Well, this is a result of that state, the season, and perhaps also as an homage to the dark children’s books frequently produced by French publishers, which I am continuously fascinated by. Take a look at some of these titles to soothe your little one to sleep:

"The weight of grief"

The silent child

“My first nightmare”

And my personal favorite,

“The visit of little death”
illustration by Kitty Crowther

Happy Halloween, everyone!
