Flashlight Night by Matt Esenwine - ADVISABLE

Esenwine, Matt Forrest Flashlight Night, illustrated by Fred Koehler.  PICTURE BOOK.  Boyds Mill Press, 2017.  $17.

A trio of friends take their flashlight out into the night and use their imaginations to encounter many mysterious adventures.

What a great flip from the regular flashlight book.  Usually the flashlight is used to stop a child from being scared by showing what is there vs their imaginings.  This time the flashlight helps them imagine the different worlds they enter.  It is a little dark, but I think that helps blur the line between reality and fantasy in a fun way.
