Don't Shut the Door
This is an independent Australian childrens book written by Matthew Nicholls and illustrated by the amazing Dave Atze, published by Boy In A Box Productions.
Most of us have experienced instances where our imagination overrides logic to convince us that there is SOMETHING lurking in the dark. That shadow out of the corner of our eye has the potential to be worst nightmare! We sense it waiting, patiently, for the right moment to pounce!
Don't Shut the Door is about that fear of the dark, expressed from the perspective of a child trying to convince their parents to keep the bedroom door ajar.
Matthew decided to write this book after considering the impressive list of excuses his eldest son would recite to him every evening. He, like so many other adults who once were children, could relate to the irrational fear behind the plea 'Don't shut the door!'
