    Gabriella Glowworm Is Not Afraid of the Dark by Ian Jackson. COMING SOON

    Gabriella Glowworm, like so many of us, is a little afraid of the dark. She talks--a lot--to keep her courage up. She carries a tiny lamp to push back the shadows. But in the end she finds out that after the nighttime there is always a sunrise.
