This book is made for children. The idea was to make it interactive and entertaining, but at the same time to keep some mysterious atmosphere and make all illustrations drawn by hand.  It has 3 different cut outs with the trees, 7 monsters on the sticks and small torch. Reader can find  one spread where the cut outs with the trees can be placed. Cut out monsters can be lit up and create some shadows behind the trees, so children can play with it.

The story is about a girl, who felt lonely in a huge mansion. Her parents were always away, so she was always on her own. She was wondering around her abandoned house and some strange creatures were all around. When the night fell on the Earth she was dreaming and travelling to the dream lands with her night guard- owl.  

 
 

Shadowplay

Four pages in the book should be used for the monsters and the light. As the girl is walking around her abandoned house, she meets new friends- monsters. Children can play with the light and the monster, pointing the light on the monster so the shadow will be on the page.

Find the monster

The book has one spread where the cut outs where trees can be placed. Cut out monsters can be placed in front  of the page. Chid can light them up with the torch.  This creates some shadows behind the trees, so children can play with it.

 
 

Play with me

There is also a possibility to take the cut outs and play with it on any other surfaces, for example, on the white wall. If the light will be placed behind the cut out trees, it can create a mysterious forest on the wall.
