What There Is Before There Is Anything There: A Scary Story by Liniers (Groundwood Books)

CoverPrepare to be afraid, very afraid!

‘What There Is Before There Is Anything There’ will resonate deeply with any child, or adult for that matter, who has ever been afraid of the dark.

Every night the same thing happens. The nervous anticipation, then the utter dread as first comes one, then another and then more… You know how it goes, right?

WTIBTIATIf you’ve ever been afraid of the dark, you’ll totally identify with this terrifying tale and Liniers has got the characterisation of the ghouls down to a T.

Some are big, some small, some with evil pointy noses and some sporting masks. But all as equally horrifying.

It’s also reassuring to see the parents reaction appears to be the same the world over.

“What’s wrong? Not again? It’s just your imagination.”


It’s a wonderfully spooky story that brings dark humour to those all too familiar night time terrors. It’s written and illustrated by the world-famous Argentinian cartoonist, Liniers and if you haven’t already, check him out.
